Surface computing by deekshita bhuyan

  1. 1. SURFACE COMPUTING Presented by Deekshita Bhuyan 5 th sem, EC ‘A’ Roll: 37
  2. 2. What it actually is ????
  3. 3. Surface computing is the term for the use of a specialized computer GUI(graphical user interface) in which traditional GUI elements are replaced by intuitive everyday objects.Instead of a keyboard or a mouse,the user interacts directly with a touch-sensitive screen. The software giant Microsoft has built a new touchscreen computer  in fact, a coffee table that will change the world totally…..You can go inside its top-secret development and then just forget the keyboard and mouse….The next generation of computer interfaces are here………..
  4. 4. What is touch screen?? --->It is an electronic visual display that can detect the presence and location of a touch within the display area.
  5. 5. It uses Intel Core 2 Duo at 2.13 GHz, 2 GB DDR2 RAM, 250 GB SATA Hard Drive. <ul><li>The Microsoft Surface </li></ul><ul><li>is a 360 degree user interface, 30-inch reflective surface with a projector underneath the surface.It has been optimized to respond to 52 touches at a time. </li></ul>
  6. 6. How does it work basically ??? <ul><li>The system is composed of a horizontal touchscreen under a table-like surface with cameras mounted below to detect user interaction activities.With no interface text,the surface can be used by speakers of any language and any competency level.Pictures in a digital camera placed on the surface are automatically downloaded to the device and displayed on the screen.We can even transfer those pictures to another device,say a cellphone .It simply requires the user to place the phone on surface and drag the pictures in its direction…. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Functioning… <ul><li>Five video cameras operating in the infrared spectrum detect the objects and hand gestures at the screen’s interface.The 3-D screen runs at a nominal 1024 by 768 resolution , easily graphed by the camera array… </li></ul>
  8. 8. Why is it more useful than Bluetooth , Wifi etc ?? <ul><li>Although the underlying bluetooth and Wifi technologies are considered safe for transfer of data itself,the ease with which the documents can be accidentally or maliciously copied is highly alarming….. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Applications of it in our day to day life <ul><li>It is slowly starting to catch on in our daily life,….it was even used by MSNBC during 2008 U.S. Presidential Elections…In the grand Starwood and Sheraton Hotels , they allow users to drop a credit card on the table to pay for their meals,music and other amenities at their ultimate luxurious and heavenly resort. </li></ul>
