INTRODUCTION
For years engineers and computer technicians have looked for a better way for people to communicate with their computers. Keyboards while feeling natural to many of us has advanced very little beyond the typewriters which have been around for well over a hundred years and though the mouse is a step above that it still takes practice for someone who has never used one to become used to the idea of moving the mouse withit and after years of using a computer many older people still have trouble with theconcepts of double clicking, right clicking, dragging, dropping and other techniques thatcan seem simple to more advanced computer users.Computing is usually defined as the activity of using and developing computer technology, computer hardware and software. It is the computer specific part of information technology.Surface computing or Microsoft surface (codename : Milan) is a multi-touchproduct form Microsoft which h is developed as a software and hardware combinationtechnology that allows a user are multiple user to manipulate digital content by the useof natural motions , hand gestures, or physical objects.Microsoft Surface Computer is the first in a new category of surface computingproducts from Microsoft that will break down traditional barriers between people andtechnology. It is the next generation of computer interfaces those offer multi touchtechnology. Unlike most touch screens, surface computer can respond to more than onetouch at a time without keyboard or a mouse. The next generation of computer interfaceswill be hands on.

computing 
 
:
 
In general way, we can define computing to mean any goal-oriented activityrequiring, benefiting from or creating computers. Thus, computing includes designingand building hardware and software system for a wide range of purposes; processing,structuring, and managing various kinds of information; doing scientific studies usingcom
 
puters; making computer systems behave intelligently; creating and usingcommunications and entertainment media; finding and gathering information relevant toany particular purpose, and so on. The list is virtually endless, and the possibilities arevast.
TIME LINE
The technology behind Surface is called multi touch and has at least a
25- year 
history,
beginning in 1982
, with pioneering work being done at the
University of Toronto
(multi-touch tables) and
Bell Labs
(multi touch screen). The product idea for Surface was
initially 
 
conceptualized in 2001
by
Steven Bathiche
of MicrosoftHardware and
Andy Wilson
of Microsoft Research.In
October 2001
, a virtual team was formed with
Bathiche
and
Wilson
as keymembers, to bring the idea to the next stage of development.In
2003
, the team presented the idea to the Microsoft chairman
Bill Gates
in agroup in a group review. Later, the virtual team was expanded and a
prototype
nicknamed T1
was produced within a month.
