Samsung SUR40 with Microsoft PixelSensesamsunglfd.com/solution/sur40.do
Microsoft is showing off cool tech from Microsoft Research at the annual TechFest. Microsoft Research's SecondLight project first made the rounds back at PDC in October when it was presented on-stage. Then we reported a month ago on Stimulant's XRay, which was a kind of SecondLight using an iPhone. Today, there's been more coverage of Microsoft Research's "SecondLight" project. This time it looks like they're letting the press up close and personal. It's always fun to see what is shown to the public from that brain-bank that is MSR. While it isn't the next version of Microsoft Surface, it is a really cool example of where technology could go in the future. After all, Surface was once one of those futuristic projects that came true.
Updates: Jason @ TechCrunch has jumped onto posting about SecondLight. I'd love to know what they're doing with their Surface unit.CNET's Ina Fried is at TechFest and posted about Andy Wilson's surface computer in a sphere.
A couple weeks back, Microsoft held an Army Symposium to have a two-way conversation with with Army IT community around their specialized needs. I crashed the event with Larry Larsen from Channel 10 because we heard there was a Microsoft Surface unit there. Sure enough, just down from the latte cart, there was Josh Wall from Information Strategies (InfoStrat) showing off some cool tech on Microsoft Surface. Larry captured the interview on video below.- Eric
I'll admit it. I am a bit slow picking up and posting on this. So, I'm going to give credit where it's due and link on over to John Mullinax's comprehensive post. The short of it is: It's Microsoft Surface. It comes with this beautiful Lazzara yacht. They partnered with Infusion Development. Buy one today before you are the last kid on your block with your very own Microsoft Surface at your dock. Get to it!
