Two New Microsoft Surface Apps Revealed

Microsoft Surface developer Kevin Kennedy recently gave us a look at two new Microsoft Surface applications he has under development. Although neither app is 100% ready for real-world use just yet, both are great examples of Surface’s potential. The two new apps are called SplatBox and Bubble Wrap.

SplatBox is an app for video DJs that lets them create  and modify videos on the fly using touch:

The other app, Bubble Wrap, turns the screen of the Surface into a giant sheet of bubble wrap for your popping pleasure. That may not be the most useful app, but it does demonstrate how Surface can combine physical interaction with audio and visual recordings for a unique (and fun!) computing experience.
