Microsoft Surface: Bill Gates and Co can still innovate after all these years
Well today marked the announcement of a new product from Bill Gates and Co (Microsoft) that is nothing short of revolutionary. Microsoftâ€™s new product named Surface is the next step in computer interaction. If you havenâ€™t had the opportunity to witness what Surface is yet have a look at this short video that gives you a glimpse at this new computer interaction device disguised as a table.
Although Surface isnâ€™t yet being released for mass consumption it will be out Winter of 2007 they say, though Microsoft is notorious for having to push back release dates similar to their latest Vista OS launch.
Surface if adopted widely could change the way things in our world are done, imagine sitting in a restaurant and the table your eating at is actually a Surface computing device. You could preview the dessert menu, and place your order for a chocolate cheesecake. Or maybe you want to split the bill among 3 people. Just put each of your cards on the table and divide of the bill by dragging the items from the bill to the individual credit cards. Or maybe youâ€™ve got digital photos of your recent trip to the beach and you want to load them onto your cellphone for a new desktop background. Well then set your camera and cell phone on the Surface and let Surface display a collage of all your images and then drag the images of your choosing to your cell.
Surface could really revolutionize the way that we all interact with technology in the future and I for one canâ€™t wait to get one of these as a new coffee table at the house. Imagine how much fun Christmas at our house would be if we had this in the living room.
Below is a video of a longer and in-depth technology showcase of the Microsoft Surface in action while presenting it to the press.
