Multi-Touch Surface Computing

Saw this over at TechCrunch from a couple of days ago. Not widgets related but very interesting none-the-less. Microsoft announced Microsoft Surface, a multi-touch surface computing platform. Users interact with the surface computer through touch, gestures and physical objects placed on the surface.

While touch screens and surface interactions is nothing new, Microsoft has prototyped a package that looks great. See the embedded video below for the demo. The applications can be limitless; table tops, walls, counters, photos, videos, remote controls, maps, menus etc…

Microsoft is looking to release this for initial commercial partners as early as late 2007.
