Microsoft Sphere - anyone for 3D Pong?

Microsoft's much-touted touchscreen Surface PC has gone all 3D and spherical, with a new video from Microsoft's research labs in Redmond showing off an impressive new prototype of the Microsoft Sphere.

The spherical computer prototype's multi-touch user interface uses infrared tech to detect hands and fingers dragging icons across the screen, in addition to an internal projection system developed by Global Imagination.

hmmm... i really think this is one of those really interesting, but not too practical invention u see around the web. I don't know how something like this could apply to everyday use, outside some spherical apps (although the real-time globe, and 360 photo sound kinda neat) I don't think those are enough to warrant such a device though.

And yes i am aware that this is just a concept invention, my point is why invest money into R&D for such a trivial "product?" that doesn't appear to add any value to your company.

anyways thats my 2 cents plz discuss....

Why not?

To prove something can be done is just normal.
