I was intrigued and dazzled by the surface computing technology used in the Minority Report movie where objects and images could be moved around on screens using finger tips to drag them around.

Turns out this was not entirely fiction. Microsoft has unveiled a technology called Surface Computing that has many of the same features. MSNBC is running a really good background piece on this new technology.

Look for this at T-Mobile stores, Harrah’s in Vegas and Sheraton (Starwood) Hotels. It’s a mere $10,000 per unit, but when the price comes down, I know what my next living room coffee table will be.
