The debatably useful Microsoft Surface touch-sensitive computer table has finally hit the UK shores today. It’s expected to cost a hefty £10,000 when anyone can work out where to actually buy it and I’ll offer an even bigger prize when I’m wowed by a really important application of this gesture controlled display tech.
The real bonus of the machine is its ability to interact with objects placed on the surface and I may be hearing about hospitals using it for patients’ medical records or hotels for self-check-in but no one seems to have, as yet, uncovered its real potential. And as far as Ballmer’s claims of one in your home go, unconvinced doesn’t even come close.
