This is another "the future is coming sooner than we might think" (also known as a "Wow. that's just cool, I want that") story showing some amazing integration between the Windows Phone 7, Surface and Kinect.
An Australian software development company specializing in Surface applications took the spotlight of the Microsoft TechEd Australia 2011 developer keynote today with a pretty compelling “seamless computing” demo utilization the whole deck of Microsoft platforms including Windows Phone 7, Surface, Windows 7, Kinect and Silverlight.
The demo features a scenario where an architect is working on a house design project and needs to find a replacement part for a door handle that is no longer available. To visualize the change, they utilize a system that brings together the phone, a tablet, an interactive surface and gestures working in unity.
Special note about the source;
One notable outcome of this project is that Microsoft and nsquare are going to be giving away the source code of the whole solution to universities (and others) for user experience education purposes
