This morning on NBC’s Today show, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates unveiled a new technology called Surface Computing that lets people interact with computers using touch, hand gestures, and physical objects equipped with optical tags. The technology turns tabletops into dynamic canvases so users can, for example, browse their music libraries by dragging a finger across the horizontal display or maybe comparison-shop at an electronics store by simply plunking devices onto the screen. Video of this morning’s demo. What do you think? Will this revolutionize computing?
