Description

Bill Gates showed a cool new demo of Microsoft Surface as part of his CES 2008 key note presentation (at the 27:00 mark). In it he customized a virtual snowboard with decals and a signature then saved it to his Windows Mobile device and Windows Live Spaces site.
We sat down with Mark Bolger from the Surface group for a more indepth look at Microsoft Surface following on from our exclusive "first look" back in May.

Mark took us through a quick recap of the fundamentals of the Microsoft Surface technology and ran through the full version of Bill's "Snowboard" demo plus the "virtual wine steward" scenario which was not shown during the keynote.
If you're interested in learning more about Surface and how you may interact with it in real life once it deploys (sometime this year) make sure you check out the video.

      It's an amazing piece of technology to interact with. The ability for surface to recognise inanimate objects (with no discernable heat/IR signature) like a paint brush is truly amazing - and set's the tech apart from other "multi touch" offerings.

      I think the "wine demo" is a really awesome example of how Surface will change the way we document and share parts of our lives.

      The possibilities are (almost) endless! Smiley
