Now this is cool. Jeff Weir and John Lynn work in the Microsoft Live Labs team (that's the group that created Photosynth). They also have a couple of Surface units in their office. So the two of them came up with an idea to build a little application called Shadow Box (or unofficially "nightmare box") that 'burns' in and out images of what the infrared camera inside the surface sees. The end result is both awesome and spooky! Check out the video of Shadow Box in action.

    That's very creative, almost like painting with light.

    Now that's amazing. It's like you can make real art with Surface. Not just messy finger painting. And it's sort of like a camera, being able to show the card faces or real faces that well enough. Shadow Box could be a real artist' tool. :^)

    Sweet, I guess you could do a painting with that.
    It would be cool if after you've finished your masterpiece you could email it to yourself, Or a friend with a nice virtual keyboard. ...I can only dream.

    Finger Painting 2.0, haha. Take that Crayola-mess-less-paint-kit!

    Umm, I'm quite amazed at the quality of the "burned" image. There are definately many undiscovered applications for this; the opportunities are endless.
