The Right Tempo A blog by Felipe M. G. Ceotto

This is going to be a quick post... I just have to talk about this, since I've posted something related to it just a couple of days ago.

Oh well... I almost didn't believe it when I read today the headlines saying that "Microsoft waves in Minority Report-style computing era". They're releasing a screen just like the one I was talking about on my last post. Well, not everything like that, just the part about the multi-touch screen, they haven't got to transparent screens yet. It's called Microsoft Surface, and according to the article, it was top secret until now.

It looks beautiful, but the screen on Jeff Han's project looked just a little better, especially because of the way the applications were interfacing with the user. The applications seemed to be completely developed thinking about the multi-touch environment, but while Microsoft's screen has most of the same features, it shows something of an inheritance of the single-touch environment... I don't know, maybe it's just me being a bitch when it comes to MS. :)

Either way, I'm glad to see these technologies coming our way.
