Microsoft unveiled “Surface” a new human-information interaction appliance with “Table form factor” on May 31, 2007; this has been under development since 2001. After several design attempts, the current one in the form of a large 30” diagonal bright surface, with the processor hidden under the surface was unveiled.

There are many cute factors; but it is too early to comment as very few would have the privilege of experimenting with the surface.

Targeted at group interaction and usage model of multi-touch interaction, “Surface” might mean many things to many people, nonetheless very exciting product. Even according to Microsoft a commercial product is 3 to 5 years away!
