VPlay: Video Performance in surface computing
We've seen a number of examples of audio performances getting a boost from surface computing. There's the ReacTable , which is probably the most well known from Bjork's performances. There's also the reacTagon and many others too numerous to name. On Microsoft Surface there is Stimulant's work on ToneGrid...

We spend a lot of time thinking about how the unique optical capabilities of Microsoft Surface can be used to create magical experiences with everyday objects. A couple folks from the Applied Sciences team and the Surface SDK team got together a while ago to prototype one such concept that we call "SurfaceWare...

Surface at MIX 08
I was lucky to be part of the team that went to the Venetian in Las Vegas to demo Surface at MIX 08 . Demoing Surface is fun, interesting, and exhausting. There were always attendees at the booth. Between sessions it would get pretty crowded. Also, this wasn’t a trade show with 100’s of booths. It was...

Surface at The CeBIT
Surface and the team jumped across the pond earlier this week for some demo time at The CeBIT (I don't think it is actually called 'The CeBIT' but I find it funny that some people call it that...so I'm sticking with it) in Hannover, Germany. The CeBIT is the world's largest tradeshow. It puts CES to...

Our Last Day at CES
So we’re in the home stretch at CES. Today is the last day!!! As draining as this show is, as crazy as the planning has been, as stressful as it was to watch BillG demo Surface (fingers crossed so tight that it performed well-IT DID!) in his last keynote…it has been totally worth it. It’s the biggest...

Tuesday at CES
Tuesday was another great day for the Surface team n the Microsoft booth at CES. Because of the reworked the flow of the booth overnight to better accomodate the crowds it felt less packed and we seemed to have more room to breath. Nonetheless it was still crazy busy as folks lined up to touch Surface...

Surface Debuts at CES
Surface had its CES coming out party last night, as Bill Gates showed off one of our new demo applications (a retail product customization scenario) in his final keynote to the industry. History-making stuff and I'm glad Surface could be a part of it. Technically, we were here last year with an NDA event...

CES...Here We Come!!
CES is right around the corner and the Surface team is getting ready to show off some new demo experiences.

Let's dive into some design. Obviously, there's way too much to cover so I'll start small and specific and we'll gradually cover more ground over time. So, I'll start with general navigation and a key navigational element we call "Access Points". In creating a navigation model for any system, you...

A Matter of Time...
As you might have read by now, C|Net reported that the first Surface units will be in the wild a little later than we originally planned. It’s a slight shift in timing for us, but we think that some of the stuff we’ve been working on is worth a little more wait. This is an entirely new category of technology...
