Whilst in Redmond I was housed on floor 4 of building 35. Luckily, just by the lifts on the fourth floor is a Microsoft Surface Computer. I congratulate the surface team, because this technology rocks! The demos they had running were very impressive. Ignoring the geek value of the games, I was particularly excited by the video and picture sorter. It really is like having the pictures scattered over the table - you can toss them around, resize them, even whilst the video is playing if its a video. It was a real immersive experience. The software seems rock solid. There were people playing with it most of the time, and it really does seem Just To Work (TM). Cool stuff.
