    Some of you may have heard of Microsoft's Surface technology, which is basically a beautiful and masterful 3D interface built for tabletops. A more informative (and slightly comedic) introduction can be found here. Basically, Steve Balmer took a look at this in-development technology, saw a huge consumer response to it, and decided it was high-time to accelerate development and production. Hence, instead of waiting until 2011 for this thing to come out, we may be seeing it much sooner. Exactly how soon is not known at this point, but it will definitely be sooner. The business version of this technology will be unleashed sometime this Spring, if all goes well.

    i just wrote a report on muti-touch, covered ms surface too. from what i found out, its just vista and touchscreen, and a heavy copy of iphone multitouch features..well done MS for originality

    tbh theres much more innovative multi-touch screens out there, look up jeff han and his research and some germans have created something very similar to minority report! pointscreen i think it was called
