Surface - the future of human computer interaction?

Actually I am on vacation right now, jumping out of airplanes. If you ever are in Sweden and you want to give it a try check out the Stockholm Skydiving Club in Gryttjom. It's a really great dropzone :)

But as you can see I couldn't resist the temptation to have a quick peek on the net. I am almost ashamed - I do not last for a whole week without access to the internet ;-)

A friend send me a link to Microsoft Surface and I thought I have to pass it on since we talked about human computer interaction before. I am not a big Microsoft fan, but what they show on this site is quite impressive. I cannot wait until these kind of interfaces are available. Just wondering though how they deal with fatty fingers. It seems the days where I could tell everyone off to NOT touch my screen are drawing to an end :)

Bugger - and the next time I want to write something I should FIRST read the other new blog entries since Fredrik is damn fast :)

Can't live with the Internet - can't live without it.... A bit funny that we write about the same subject - cool stuff indeed - and both making a nod of hesitation and maybe respect towards microsoft.... But the fatty finger problem still reamains. Videos just show clean male 40 somethings without fatty fingers. (Probably right before lunch....)

Have some great skydiving man!
Hey guys, this I remember seeing about two years ago on youtube. It was displayed by some university. I guess MS bought that idea!
