Microsoft presented a new way of human computer interaction (HCI) called MS surface. It is a table that contains a large multi-touch display. The interesting thing is not the display contained in the table, the interesting is again the multi-touch technology. Multi-touch technology enables the user to increases the manipulation rate dramatically. With a traditional mouse or pen device you are only able to manipulate one point at the same moment in time. Multi-touch offers magnitudes more concurrent ways of manipulation.
Let’s see, when we can buy it or use it in the office. More information about MS surface are linked.
