I quite like the concept of Microsoft Surface.
Yes, FTIR is not good for the purpose it’s being used, but still the idea is cool and soon enough we will have small multi-touch devices (with other techniques that don’t involve a huge table).
It’s easy to criticize technology when it’s still near it raw form. But the user interfaces we use are becoming too old for our needs and we should be happy that Perceptive Pixel changed the way the market is opened to new alternatives. If you like user interfaces, like I do, just visit Natural User Interfaces Group.
Oh, and just because I think all of this things it doesn’t mean I don’t think the following video is funny. It is! :P
