    I take that it is just a preview of something coming out in like 5-10 years, since the thing would have to work with creditcards, phones and shit

    maybe in 10 or 20 years

    I saw this at one of the Expos; it's supposed to completely revolutionize the way you interface with your computer, like, completely replacing the keyboard (and having a virtual one you can call up, on-command) and mouse. I'm kinda surprised Microsoft actually bought this, but then, it's a good decision, looking at the next 3-5 years of computing and digital media.

    As much as it looks neat, I bet after a good week or so I'd get bored of it and end up allowing things like textbooks and whatever the hell to pile up on the screen until it breaks :(

    If the price isn't shown then you should take your phone number, area code and everything, and then add a dollar sign in front of it for a good guess.

    How far did we come... i remember when having a digital camera was a big WOW not to speak of a graphic tablet now we can expect this? the future scares me....

    it seems weird that i will be able to place my device on this desk and it will just recognize it and could store information on it without establishing a connection. Seems kinda impossible

    they claim it is coming out soon. They already have demo units available to try at events and say it is going to be available at certain public areas in the near future.

    I could definitely see this replacing a traditional coffee table assuming it is durable enough.

    ^ so having a brawl in a restaurant is going to be more expensive LOL

    the question is going to be:

    who is more fucked... the one who got his back broken by the table... or the one who broke it on someone's back?

    I dunno if you guys saw the 18 minute video but they say it will be going to Microsoft Partners first, (like T-Mobile or Harrah's) by the end of this year!! So even if we won't own one, we will probably still see one soon. Imagine this in restaurants

    And Imagine the Zune, being able to upload music so easy... But does it do this thru Wifi/Blutooth or by barcodes on the back of the devices?

    I know what you mean. Im starting to think its called cutting edge because of the way it slices your wallet in half. But what isn't expensive when it first comes out??
