Surface Demo from Bill Gates

Here's Bill Gates giving the people from Scientific American a personal demo of the Surface Multi-Touch table[click to watch video]. According to Microsoft, these should begin to show up in hotels and restaurants and as prices drop, as a consumer product.

Compare to Jeff Han's multi-touch devices and of course the Apple iPhone.

I think these devices are particularly exciting for education. Consider how little the traditional chalk/whiteboard has changed in the last 50 or 60 years, and imagine what we could do with a board like this - I don't even know what we'd call it.
