Microsoft Surface computer
Microsoft Surface, the first commercially available multi-touch surface computer from Microsoft, turns an ordinary tabletop into a vibrant, interactive surface. The product provides effortless interaction with digital content through natural gestures, touch and physical objects. Surface is a 30-inch display in a table-like form factor that’s easy for individuals or small groups to interact with in a way that feels familiar, just like in the real world. In essence, it’s a surface that comes to life for exploring, learning, sharing, creating, buying and much more. Soon to be available in restaurants, hotels, retail establishments and public entertainment venues, once it becomes affordable for in-home use Microsoft hopes it will transform the way people shop, dine, entertain and live.

  • Now let’s take this into gaming. At Microsoft’s Surface campus, they showed the very first videogame ever for this new computing platform. Carbonated games (of Uno and Hexic fame) created it and it’s called Firefly. Using Surface’s unique multi-touch interface, it gives a glimpse of what a gaming could be if it’s not limited to mice and controllers. The goal in Firefly is to be the first player to collect 3 fireflies of each color, while preventing your opponents from doing so. But it’s not really about the bug collecting, imagine how the interface could be used for real-time strategy games and the like.

    Here’s Firefly, the first game for Microsoft Surface:
