Microsoft Surface

A friend pointed me to Microsoft Surface. Apart from the annoying fact that the site does not work with Apple’s Safari (but it does with Firefox), I find it pretty interesting. Surface is, to put it shortly, a new breed of user interface using the same kind of multitouch screen you find on the Apple iPhone. (Update: It turns out this is not a touchscreen).

This is not the first time I actually see something like that: HP also had something similar in the works. There is even a blog dedicated to these topics. But Microsoft Surface is interesting for two reasons. The first one is that it’s the first time I see something that might actually be a real user-interface and not a mock up or an impressive hardware test. The second one is… secret.

Anyway, if we one day get to the point where we have multitouch capabilities in foldable screens
