Microsoft Surface and Mobile Phone Mashup


What do you get when you combine a Microsoft Surface computer with a mobile phone? You get the new XRay mashup application from Stimulant Labs. This application, inspired by Microsoft’s SecondLight technology which debuted at PDC 2008, takes advantage of Surface’s object recognition capabilities to recognize the position of one or more mobile phones on the Surface computer. The technology allows the phones to “see through” the images and reveal a second layer of information – sort of like an X-Ray.

Although the demo they have posted on their site features the iPhone, they note that the technology is working with both Windows Mobile devices and Android, too.

You have to see the video of this: it’s amazing.
