My 2 Cents: It’s been a while since i have posted anything but when I saw this proof of concept for Microsoft’s Surface, I just has to post it. In the past I have only been seeing different flash animations that utilized surface’s multi-touch interface but in this case you really see the potential of this technology.
It does not hurt that I am a fan of Dungeons & Dragons but the way that this was executed was too nice…I really can not wait to get my hands on this…too nice
We’ve seen some fancy applications for Microsoft’s Surface, the touchable, strokable, caressable computing device/big-ass table, but not a single one has made us twitter in nerdy glee like Surfacescapes. Created by a team at Carnegie Mellon University, it’s an implementation of Dungeons & Dragons in 3D, something that has of course been done dozens and dozens of times before, but this is different. Way different.
My 2 Cents: I love this stuff…now here is a beautiful vid that Microsoft put out showing us their view on where the world of technology is heading. Right not the possibilities seem to be without bounds…and I think that TOUCH technology is driving all of this new innovations and that it does not matter if its be on a phone / computer / table … only how it can be integrated into our everyday lives seems to be the goal…very inspiring…at least I think so…
At the recent Wharton Business Technology Conference, Steven Elop, president of Microsoft’s business division, unveiled the latest future montage video from Microsoft Office Labs. The video, known simply as 2019, provides a sneak peek at the future according to Microsoft.
The widespread use of surface and touchscreen devices coupled with ubiquitous wireless connectivity provides a future worthy of any science fiction novel. It is an interesting watch and will be even more interesting as the future unfolds and we see which of these technologies come to fruition. Hit the jump for the video.
