Very similar. Both very cool. Ever since I saw the youtube video I wondered when either Apple or Microsoft would man up and make it happen. (I wish Apple had done it first, howeverÃ¢â‚¬Â¦) I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t wait to be able to interact with this new technology. But I do wonder, when it will be available to the common folk: us.
If you read in the fine print in the Ã¢â‚¬ËœFact SheetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ about Microsoft Surface, and all it says about availability is: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Beginning at the end of this year (2007), consumers will be able to interact with Surface in hotels, restaurants, retail and public entertainment venues.Ã¢â‚¬Â Surface must be a pretty costly hardware and software if only big companies will be purchasing it and using it.
So bears the question, when will the common folk get this new Ã¢â‚¬ËœSurfaceÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ to have in their homes?
Can it be installed on laptops with the Ã¢â‚¬ËœtabletÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ feature? When will this Ã¢â‚¬ËœSurfaceÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ be not just in coffee table format but horizontal on a wall? But I will stop letting my
imagination run wild, and just say I would also like technology creators to hurry along and make everything like Minority Report. :)
