Microsoft Surface to 'fundamentally change device interaction

Input revolution, says VP

Earlier in the week, we ran an exclusive interview with Neil Holloway, Vice President of Microsoft's international business.

Speaking at the recent Microsoft Innovation day in Brussels, Holloway talked with TechRadar in-depth about Windows 7, Windows Mobile and Microsoft's plans for major R&D investment in Europe.

But when asked to pick out his standout tech from the event, Holloway was quick to point to Microsoft Surface, recently officially announced in the UK at an £8,500 price point.

Playing like R.U.S.E. on it would be awesome, if you have 11k euros to waste.

It's a lot cheaper in the UK with the current exchange rate.

...this will be a viable, affordable technology.

Everybody thought MS was going for a quick knock-off of the Wii control scheme last year, but the recent announcement of a new 3-D camera, along with Surface, shows they're thinking WAY beyond what Nintendo has to offer.

I can't wait to see what gaming implementation this tech has to offer.

I've been exposed to two for a while and alot of people seem interested in the features it has. Multi-touch is a nice way to get people social around a computer. But it's about the applications. The ones i've been exposed to only have a few demo's installed on them. And those aren't that impressive. It's a hot topic in businesses though. I do think multi-touch will change a lot of things, but the Surface isn't that impressive. The screen looks dull and the interface is horrible, trust me. But well written software can change that. I do think it will have a big influence on the way we interact, but for now, we will only see it (slowly) in business related contexts. Tagged objects are nice though, interacting with fysical and virtual environments, that's where we're headed towards.
