Samsung SUR40 with Microsoft PixelSensesamsunglfd.com/solution/sur40.do
We've recently made available a group of sample applications for our Microsoft Surface customers as a download on our Community site. These applications are targeted at hospitality and entertainment venues. See the video below for a demo of the apps, or learn more here if you're a registered customer.
Quick note to announce that the Multitouch and Surface Computing workshop at CHI 2009 (Boston, MA) was a resounding success! I (tried my best to) capture each session with my handheld video camera and I will work with each presenter to make sure that they are okay with sharing their work more publically… Today is day one of the conference and attendance (from what I was told) has remained stable but there are more students represented this year. This is an interesting trend compared to industry conferences, where (according to our very own Barb Marshall) attendance is generally reduced but more decision makers are represented. Back to sessions. Stay tuned.
As I noted yesterday, HIMSS '09 is in Chicago this weekend. Microsoft Surface will be there with some of our partners. We have a growing partner ecosystem with more than 120 to-date with several focusing on the health care industry. Four of our Microsoft Surface partners will be at HIMSS this year; Infusion Development, Vectorform, Allscripts and MEDHOST. If you're at HIMSS, be sure to check them out.
