Microsoft’s latest innovation is a flat table like computer system powered by Windows vista and controlled by touch screen. For the matter of fact it is called Microsoft Surface.
Surface is a Windows Vista powered computer placed inside a shiny black table base. These machines are user-friendly and have a 30-inch touch screen in a clear acrylic
Users can interact with the surface device by touching or dragging their fingers across
the screen, or by setting real-world items tagged with special bar-code labels or identification tags. Like most of the latest devices, the Surface can interact with
cell phones, digital cameras and other physical objects wirelessly.
GeekLord’s comment: It is a nice product and a good concept, but based on my own experience with Nokia 7710 (touch screen PDA with very few keys) I can say that It would take a lot of time and effort to develop a system that can by used without conventional input devices. It can be really annoying at times when you can’t give the device a three finger salute. 🙂
