    Spotted: Library with Microsoft Surface


    I was just poking around this afternoon and spotted the following video out on Flickr. It's at the Darien Library, a hi-tech library in Connecticut. It looks like they just moved into their new building on Friday. [CORRECTION] They will be moving into their new library in January. Along with what looks like a large pile of Dell computers, they unboxed a Microsoft Surface unit. What I love about this video is how the woman, Kate, plays with the water using her scarf. There's genuine and absolute joy expressed by those "kids".

    What would you like to use Microsoft Surface for at your local library if they had one?

    Surface in Day the Earth Stood Still


    I'll have to admit, I'm probably a little slow on posting this one because I haven't had a chance to get out and see the movie myself. Microsoft Surface gives the tech heads and military some help in the blockbuster movie remake, The Day the Earth Stood Still. According to Register Hardware, it's a good 20-30 seconds of Surface goodness on screen. If anyone happens to spot any photos on the intertubes, let us know in the comments. I'm hoping to catch the movie over my holiday break.

    SplatBox, the VJ app, on Microsoft Surface


    Kevin Kennedy will have been with the Microsoft Surface team five years in January. On the blog, he's brought you How Creating Surface Apps is Different, parts one and two. You can see his intro too. It's hard to get developers out of their offices and on the blog sometimes, so I went to Kevin's office this time. We took a look at his application called SplatBox. It's a VJ application written in WPF. The design aspects are fairly raw, but it's full of possibilities. We walked through the app in the video below.
