Surface beats with Vectorform

5 minutes, 2 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

SurfaceDJ from Vectorform was one of my favorite applications shown at PDC.  Not only does it involve Multi-touch, Surface and music; but it is an example of a new form of collaborative application.  Joe Engalan and Markus Sheldon build up the music, keep it alive and then break it down in real-time while working together at the Surface table.  I want one!

Check out Vectorform's Surface blog to see some of their other Surface applications. Yes, they are the ones behind NBC's Electoral application.

  • So incredible!  I experienced the demo in TechED China 2008! So Great!
  • Surface seems so much smoother than the touchscreens.  Does it have higher-end hardware inside?

  • I saw this a while ago and Surface is definitely a very flexible virtual instrument.
    It would be interesting to use Reason 4 with a surface and an onscreen keyboard and drumpad.
    Virtual turntables would be interesting too.

    I hope they can port this to Windows 7. That would be something interesting. Although using it on upright touchscreen would be a little awkward...

    If someone could make a multitouch monitor that can go from being upright to being flat easily, then this would make a nice Win7 application.

    The Elo touch screens I use are designed to pivot though 90 deg, but at fixed height, would be cool to come up with a mount that could let you flip it flat and the slide down to desk height without becoming unstable and remaining rigid, bit like a desktop drafting board.

    EDIT: just watched the video, I sooo want one Smiley

    Cool and natural app for surface.  Can you drag and spin the edge of circle for "scratch" and repeat effects?

    No, but that sounds like a great feature for version 2! Smiley
