´A lab that Microsoft has in Cambridge has just reported that they have created a system that not only allows touch interaction like Multitouch technology, but it also happens to allow you to twist, bend, pull and squeeze different parts of the interface in order to make certain things happen. As one person put it, this is almost like Multitouch on steroids.µ

´AT&T «April ...twenty-two different Surface Computers in four of their stores in the country. When people place products on the Surface, information regarding the product will come on the screen. The customer can then directly interact with the Surface in order to change the information that is being shown or to bring up additional information regarding the product on the screen. The customer can even put two products on screen at the same time in order to do an on the spot comparison between the two products before choosing which one they want to purchase.µ

Idea is to view 3D technology without using glasses Accomplished by:

Taking advantage of binocular disparity Stereoscopic imaging
Odd Pixel Columns=Left Eye Even Pixel Columns=Right Eye Combine the 2 get 3D image from your brain focusing in on display

Not much leeway in where you need to sit, but you don·t have to stay perfectly erect. Still a bit blurry Can make you feel nauseated 3D Projection can be viewed by only one person Real-world applications supporting this technology is small
