Microsoft Surface

Have you ever imagined how a computer in the coming decades will look like? Hope these videos give you some idea about your future computer! (Well, not really future... This product was announced at the end of 2007, but we all know technologies are always delayed in Malaysia. Just look at iPhone.)

This little coffee table with a screen is currently around 5,000 to 10,000 USD. But do not panic, as we all know Microsoft products all have insane pricing when it is new to the market.

Here's another video giving you more detailed information about multi-touch and surface-interfacing. Basically you can say bye bye with your keyboard and your little mouse, things will be done with your hands on!

I just couldn't stop thinking of the possibilities:
- Imagine playing strategy game (Star Craft or Tiberium War) with this, controlling your whole army hands on with both hands on!
- Imagine playing a round of poker with this, well I'm sure you'll need some paper to cover your cards, but no more shuffling job!
- Imagine sharing photos and videos in your phone just by putting your phone on the surface, bye bye USB!
- Imagine paying your bills, sharing your bills by putting your credit cards on the surface, bye bye cashier!

For more information, visit Microsoft website and get the latest updates!

Well, Microsoft is definitely pissed off Apple for real.
