Microsoft Surface

Have I mention that I’m an apple fan? I used to have a MacBook before. I currently own an iPad 2. But I guess, I’m starting to like Microsoft again because of the videos I’ve been seeing lately.

Though the videos below were released 2 years ago, I would still like to share with you the Microsoft Surface. Essentially, Microsoft Surface is a touch screen device in a table form, instead of a typical kiosk. What makes it so amazing is that not only does it have multitouch capabilities, but it can also sense fingers and any physical object placed on top of it. Watch the video below to see what I mean.

According to Wikipedia, one unit costs around $15,000. Would you be willing to get one? If yes, what kind of applications would you like it to have?

Future Interfaces

Here’s another amazing video by Microsoft on their vision of the future. I have goosebumps after watching this! It appears that almost any interface can be interactive even the car window and the kitchen door.

Would you think Microsoft will lead the future tech-world?
