Touchy Feely

Getting excited about the future of computers has been a passion of mine for a while now. With a few duds along the way, few things stand out. One of those is the multi-touch interface sweeping the world. Perceptive Pixel look like a stand out bunch of guys, and have been doing this for some time now.
Microsoft has now kicked in and together they combined to create the Microsoft Surface which looks like a modded version of Windows Vista. This kiosk like device works with infrared sensors to detect objects on the tabletop. In the demo videos, file transfer between a camera and the filesystem is done upon placing the camera on the desk surface. Dang!
