Surface computer ppt

  1. 1.  To study what is surface computer?  To study working & process of surface computer.  To study technology used in surface computer.  To study applications of surface computer.
  2. 2.  Surface computing is the term for the use of a specialized computer in which traditional GUI elements are replaced by everyday objects.  The Surface is a horizontal display on a table-like form.  Instead of a keyboard and mouse, the user interacts directly with a touch-sensitive screen.  30-inch diagonal display in table like form factor. That’s easy for an individuals or multiple people interact with just like in the real world.  Come to life for exploring, learning, sharing, creating , buying and much more.  Available in retail stores, restaurants, hotels, casinos..
  3. 3.  2001: The product idea for Surface was initially conceptualized by Steven Bathiche .  2003:1 st prototype (t1 ) was produced to bill gets for appruval  2004: Microsoft built more than 85 early prototypes for Surface.  2005: The final hardware design was completed.  2007: Interactive table top device was designed than seamlessly bring both the physical and virtual words into one.
  4. 4.  Direct Interaction : User can “grab ” the digital information with their hands, interacting with a content by touch and gesture. Without the use of mouse & keyboard.
  5. 5.  Multiuser: Surface has 360 degree user interface & 30 inch reflective surface so people can orient themselves on different sides of the surface to interact with an application simultaneously.
  6. 6.  Multi-touch Multi-touch contact refers to the ability to have multiple contact points with an interface, unlike with a mouse, where there is only one cursor.
  7. 7.  Object recognition Object recognition refers to the device's ability to recognize the presence and orientation of tagged objects placed on top of it.
  8. 8. Camera & system unit Infrared Emitter Projector Screen
  9. 9.  Screen: It has a 360-degree user interface, a 30-inch reflective surface with a XGA DLP projector underneath the surface which projects an image onto its underside  Cameras: Microsoft Surface uses cameras and image recognition in the infrared spectrum to recognize different types of objects such as fingers, tagged items and shapes.  System Unit: to perform an operations  Infrared: 850-nanometer-wavelength LED light source aimed at the surface. When an object touches the tabletop, the light is reflected to multiple infrared cameras with a net resolution of 1024 x 768, allowing it to sense, and react to items touching the tabletop.  Projector: An projector is used for displaying video, images or computer data on a surface.
  10. 10. Uses cameras to sense object, touch and hand gesture Displayed output using rear Projection User input is then Processed
  11. 11.  Pen computing refers to a computer user-interface using a pen and tablet, rather than devices such as a keyboard and a mouse.  Definition: A computer system employing a user- interface using a pointing device plus handwriting recognition as the primary means for interactive user input is called pen computing.
  12. 12.  Multi-touch refers to the ability to simultaneously register three or more distinct positions of input touches.  Multi-touch has been implemented in several different ways, depending on the size and type of interface.
  13. 13.  Partner companies use the Surface in their hotels, restaurants, and retail stores.  Hotel lobbies, such as Sheraton Hotels, to choose meals at restaurants, plan vacations and spots to visit from the hotel room.  Starwood Hotels plan to allow users to drop a credit card on the table to pay for music, books, and other amenities offered at the resort.  In casinos users can do a range of things, such as watch videos, view maps, order drinks, play games, and chat with people between Surface tables.
  14. 14.  We can direct interact with the computer without using mouse and keyboard.  Multiple user can interact at a same time.  Any physical object can be directly recognized.  Microsoft Surface responds to many points of contact simultaneously  Designing made easier Time saving by eliminating many processes.  Wireless communication between two object is possible.  New and improved learning experience.
  15. 15.  Not portable and Very expensive  Dim lighting required to avoid washing out of screen.  Barcode Required for an objects.  This is insecure system.
  16. 16.  Surface computer is advanced computer having large touch screen.  Users can interact with the machine by touching or dragging their fingertips and objects such as paintbrushes across the screen.  We can use surface computer in different hotels, Restaurants, casinos.
