After a decade long love-hate-hater-hatest relationship with Microsoft, finally Microsoft has made me go "wow".
Check out these links on Microsoft's innovative (not new) technology called Microsoft Surface: table top multi-touch
If MS plays its cards right and if this technology is cheap then it could be the next big thing at MS for the next 5 years or so. Like all touch devices the potential of this technology is limitless.
Live art and television on walls, weather information and calendars on windows, texts and homework on school desks, security information and messages on doors, recipes and cooking videos on kitchen counters, interactive board games and magazines on table tops etcetera...there is no limit.
Of course I would like to wait for the opensource / android / chrome version but MS Surface is a great innovative application nevertheless.
