    Re: Microsoft Surface

    When the news arrived in Italy, many people commented it saying Surface has already developed in Italy, in Finland, in U.S. and more and so MS has made a copy of these researches. I don't know if this is true or not, but I know this technology is a revolution!

    Now, we have to do some questions:

    1. Do MS Surface recognize the wireless devices without driver installation?
    2. Is it sure for our Credit Cards and the other credentials?
    3. Have MS developed a very revolutionary OS, more than Vista, in so few time?

    Anyway, I think it's surely a great innovation!

    Re: Microsoft Surface

    Firstly, I agree with everyone that it is one amazing innovation.

    Now coming to the confusion surrounding this new technology... I'm not sure about the origins of the research on this, but AFAIK, it was the result of a research done at Microsoft in the year 2001.

    It does not use multi-touch technology as most people presume, rather there are several strategically placed infrared sensors that capture the finger/object movements on the screen. It can simultaneously identify 52 touches and can process the same number of distinct functions.

    Regarding identifying the mobile devices (as shown in the video), it does not require any special driver installation as it never identifies the mobile. It rather reads the barcode on that device (or any object) and understands the device.

    Regarding the credit cards and their safety, it uses the same standard protocols and uses webservices securily for transactions... so absolutely secure.

    And everything runs on Vista... no revolutionary secret OS behind this... if this hurts you... you still have to live with it Stick out tongue

    Hope this clarifies some of the questions... I'll post more on this when I've a chance to meet the people behind this (Hopefully in July-EOM). So shoot me your questions so I can pick some nice ones to get answers

    Your potential, our passionSmile

    Best Regards,

    Re: Microsoft Surface

    It is interesting that you mentioned Minority Report.  I was watching it the other day and noticed the same thing.  In fact, if you watch a show called Eureka, you will have seen a similar implementation in one of the episodes.  It really amazes me how quickly technologies can go from something that is featured in a sci-fi show or movie to something that we actually can use today.  It is pretty mind blowing how quickly something seen as futuristic one day can become reality the next.
    Kindest regards,
