Next Generation Computing: Microsoft Surfaces

I’ve linked to it already in my Recommended Links list in the sidebar, but I wanted to draw additional attention to the mesmerizing new computing platform from Microsoft: Microsoft Surface.

The idea is that that users interact with the computer through muti-touch surface displays where you can interact with objects by touching them.

To see what I mean, go and watch the video on the PopularMechanics website right now:

Very exciting stuff. Our kids will look back at our computers and scoff in disbelief at our clunky, nonintuitive, mouse-mediated computing.

Visit the official Microsoft Surface website to learn more about it.

There is already a thread about its possible applications in the church at the official LDS Tech forum.

    Amazing stuff!

    I use a Panasonic Toughbook computer in my patrol car when I do my volunteer work with a law-enforcement agency, which is neat technology (I love the touch-screen monitor). The surface computer has amazing potential in personal, commercial, military, public safety and other areas. I can’t wait to see how the technology is utilized the future.
