You remember Microsoft Surface when it was first showed to the public almost three years ago, right? Well, at this year’s CES Microsoft revealed their latest generation of the magic touch table.
This time they have cooperated with Samsung to create a truly impressive user experience, and although Microsoft claim it’s cheaper than the original and if you badly want one it’s going to set you back $7,600.
The Surface 2.0 is greatly improved than it’s predecessor. First of all, it’s thinner than the original, the computer part of it being only four inches thick. In it there’s a full-power PC with an AMD graphics chip and a dual-core processor, again from AMD, running Windows 7. Unlike the first generation of Surfaces that had cameras in them to track your movements and react correspondingly, the new version technology, relying on infrared, called PixelSense. In essence each and every pixel on the screen is acting as a camera and reads what’s going on the screen.
Imagine this technology in next generation tablets and smartphones. Oh, boy, is the future exciting or what! There you go, check the coolness of the Surface v2.0 in action in the following video.
