  3. 3. What is Microsoft Surface? • Project began in 2001 • Introduced in 2007 • A surface computing platform from Microsoft. “Microsoft Surface represents a fundamental change in the way we interact with digital content. With Surface, we can actually grab data with our hands, and move information between objects with natural gestures and touch. All without using a mouse or a keyboard.”
  4. 4. What is surface computing? A form of computing that offers “a natural way of interacting with information” rather than the “traditional user interface.” “Direct Interaction” “Multi–Touch” “Multi–User” “Object Recognition”
  5. 5. • Wireless! • Digital interactive painting • At a phone store? • At a restaurant? • Play games and use the Internet. • Jukebox! Browse music, make play lists. • Maps How is the Surface used?
  6. 6. How does it work? • The Surface uses multiple infrared cameras beneath the screen/table top to sense objects, physical touch, etc. • The Surface “recognizes objects based on shape or by using domino-style identification (domino tags) on the bottom of the objects.” • This information is processed and displayed using “rear projection”. (1) Screen (2) Infrared (3) CPU (4) Projector

  13. 13. Cons • Surface is not portable and very expensive. • Privacy and security issues - Open for many to view. • Screen Visibility - Glare, finger prints/dirt and human interaction obscuring interface. • Objects needs to be tagged (domino tags or RFIDs).
  14. 14. Who’s using the Surface today? • Currently only commercially available and used in the retail, hospitality, automotive, banking and healthcare industries. •Current customers are AT&T, T-Mobile, the Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Sheraton Hotels, Disney Innovations House in California.
  15. 15. Microsoft Surface’s Future… • Surface will continue to be sold to and used by restaurants, retail, leisure and public entertainment venues. • Microsoft wants to expand to the consumer market by making a product people can use in their home environment (using other surfaces like desks or making a version that hangs on the wall). • Computer scientists hope to incorporate this kind of technology in peoples’ daily lives… Future goals are to surround people with intelligent surfaces (look up recipes on your kitchen counter or table, control TV with coffee table, etc.
  16. 16. Conclusion Microsoft Surface is the future of computers. Fundamentally changes the way we interact with technology Surface takes existing technology and presents it in a new way. It isn't simply a touch screen, but more of a touch-grab-move-slide-resize-and-place-objects-on-top- of-screen, and this opens up new possibilities that weren't there before.
