If the official Microsoft video of Surface Computing didn’t whet your appetite, perhaps this one from Popular Mechanics will. I think that most mainstream folks are missing the concept of object interaction with this platform; there’s a great example of it in this video when a picture is taken with a digital camera and the image is quickly brought to the surface interface via WiFi. The drop of a cellphone onto the platform followed by a quick drag of the image wirelessly transfers the image to the phone without the user jumping through hoops. Hey, maybe we should get one of these to replace our favorite application: ActiveSync! ;)
