Thread: Microsoft unveils "Surface"

  1. #1
    New top-secret 'Surface' will change the way we look at computing-

    In a TODAY exclusive, Paul Hochman spoke with Gates at Microsoft’s Redmond, Washington campus about a revolutionary new device Microsoft now calls “Surface.” (MSNBC.com is a Microsoft-NBC Universal joint venture.)

    “Pretty exciting, eh?” Gates said with a sly smile, when he put his hand down on what looked initially like a low, black coffee table: At the touch of his hand, the hard, plastic tabletop suddenly dissolved into what looked like tiny ripples of water. The ‘water’ responded to each of his fingers and the ripples rushed quickly away in every direction.

    “Go ahead,” he said. “Try it.” When I placed my hand on the table at the same time, there were more ripples.

    It took a moment to appreciate what was happening. Every hand motion Gates or I did was met with an immediate response from the table. There was no keyboard. There was no mouse. Just our gestures.

    “All you have to do is reach out and touch the Surface,” Gates told me with barely concealed pride. “And it responds to what you do.”

    brilliant stuff, specially auto detecting and downloading from wifi devices by just placing them over the surface or charging the credit card also by just placing them over it.

    It's just a demo.

    If you've heard the joke you'll understand.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
