Microsoft has announced its “Surface” computing platform. The culmination of some awesome work started long ago by Andy Wilson in Microsoft Research, the platform allows partners to build multi-touch based, table-top interfaces. Some decent scenarios, particularly for the retail and hospitality industry, are shown in the videos on the site. Looking forward to seeing other new user experiences come out of this platform as it’s picked up by other partners.
