I found this video on The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs, written by the Fake Steve Jobs. A creative parody Microsoft Surface:
YouTube – Microsoft Surface Parody
If this doesn’t convince you to buy Microsoft Surface, nothing will.
Actually from Microsoft.com/surface
Microsoft Surface represents a fundamental change in the way we interact with digital content.
With Surface, we can actually grab data with our hands, and move information between objects with natural gestures and touch.
Surface features a 30-inch tabletop display whose unique abilities allow for several people to work independently or simultaneously. All without using a mouse or a keyboard.
I think there could be some interesting applications for this, the website has some demos.
