Microsoft Surface represents a fundamental change in the way we interact with digital content. With Surface we can actually grab data with our hands, and move information between objects with natural gestures and touch.

Surface features a 30-inch tabletop display whose unique abilities allow for several people to work independently or simultaneously. All without using a mouse or a keyboard.

WOW! I saw this on Digg a moment ago, and it's frickin' amazing!

Wait, before anyone speaks about this being a rip-off, this has been in production for five years, just to let ya know. You can always check the "Origins" in the website :).

Oh...my...God...

This is the type of thing we used to read about in sci-fi mags when we were kids. What's next? Teleportation? Personal jetpacks? (Don't feed me a line about those Segway things, either...)

Amazing! Can't wait to try them at Harrah's!
