A game changer? (WN0018)

For someone that converted to using Mac a few years ago and is generally loathe to sing Microsoft's praises having done so, I have to admit that the company does have something very cool indeed coming out - a surface computer, turning 'an ordinary tabletop into a vibrant interactive surface'.

Microsoft Surface is a natural user interface that moves beyond the traditional mouse and keyboard experience into a whole new touchscreen world. Seems like the future that all those sci-fi movies promised us for so many years is edging a little closer.

The video above shows what it is capable of. Hmm, the pace of change is speeding up. Can't see it bringing me back into the MS fold though!
