It seems to be like a radical new way of computing. "Surface computing is a major advancement that moves beyond the traditional user interface to a more natural way of interacting with digital content. Microsoft Surface, Microsoft’s first commercially available surface computer breaks down the traditional barriers between people and technology to provide effortless interaction with all forms of digital content through natural gestures, touch and physical objects instead of a mouse and keyboard."
I am really excited about this new "top secret" product from Microsoft. I was just thinking about buying a new coffee table, but now it is clear for me: I will wait until Microsoft Surface will be available in Germany!
