Microsoft Delivers Surface SDK

Microsoft Surface is a surface computing platform that opens up a new chapter in the way people interact with computers by enabling them to access digital content through natural gestures, touch and physical objects. The platform is being opened up to the developer community for the first time at PDC2008 with the limited release of the Microsoft Surface software development kit (SDK). The SDK will enable developers to build groundbreaking applications that take advantage of the unique attributes of Microsoft Surface, which include:
• Direct interaction:  The ability to execute commands through gesture or touch, rather than via a mouse or keyboard
• Multi –touch:  The ability to manipulate multiple on-screen items at once
• Multi-user:  New collaborative computing scenarios made possible by Surface’s horizontal form factor
• Object recognition:  Digital responses to objects placed on Surface – functionality that will ultimately permit the transfer of digital content
