perfect to put your sharper image catalog on top of...and not much else. i was wondering when they where going to start marketing this. i can see the possibilities, but the demonstrations i've seen of this tech are all just more complicated ways of doing things that were made simpler years ago. that and a rather limited vision of what could be some with it. for i'm a cost of multi-thousands, i think i'll just wait for brain plugs.
Kind of neat with the touchy screen, but two words:
Yeah this is gonna sell like HOTCAKES
Man, my computer monitor gets enough scratches and fingerprint smudges as it is.
The technology demo that was on PoeTV earlier beats the shit out of this one. Also: OBLIGATORY MICROSOFT HATE
FACE TO FACE. FAMILY STYLE

Pffffft, shitty demo, sorta neat technology. But it's been done already. This invention doesn't exactly look like necesity was it's mother.
At least we know that Microsoft pays attention to the MIT media lab enough to claim grad students' inventions as their own.
while this product might not be very useful it's a step towards getting computers off our desk tops and laps and onto pretty much any surface that's convenient. ever see some "house of the future" special on television where someone has wired up their whole house? well the grand kids of this thing, those flat, flexible LCD screens that where on here a few days ago, and wireless technology are going to make that main stream.
Who wants to type a term paper on the coffee table? Or browse the web? Or play a game? It's a glorified digital photo frame at this point.
But think of what pornographers will do with it...
yeah, well, perhaps it will be the precursor to windows that show an ocean scene one minute, so go clear the next, filing entire walls with whatever background you desire, therefore increasing our fear of the outdoors and making us never go to the beach, or camp, or even leave the house ever again. this is the cyberpunk future, baby!
I like the idea but it turns out that these demos are almost all bullshit that don't actually exist yet. Source: http://scobleizer.com/2007/05/30/more-on-microsofts-surface-comput ing-initiatives/
