    Heh, the Wii concept, taken to the extreme. With it's 'magic' sensing technology, you can use an actual gun to play! Just make sure you don't have live ammunition inserted though...you wouldn't want to damage your $10,000 Microsoft Surface...that would be a tragedy. :)

    Dang I was planning on posting about this :S

    It won't ever become something like a computer. Leaning over that for more than 30 minutes would hurt anyones back, especially the older ones. Though I do think the touch screen would be a cool concept for a type of photoshop keyboard.

    imo i think its great, not sure how useful it will be, however its a great gimmick. Im sure they will have a fairly high price tag on though.

    Not if it was on a table that you could sit down to. Whenever I'm on the computer, I lean over with my forearms on the desk that my computer's on. But if you're standing up the whole time, yeah, it would probably hurt some backs.

    It's only gonna be 5-10k when it comes out.

    In a few years, it'll be like a few thousand bucks.

    Yum.

    the table is being released at around 2700, I just said that, READ...

    software might be more but surely not THAT much more.


    EDIT: I'm thinking manufacturing cost, not retail price sorry..
