And You Thought Pinch Zoom Was Awesome

The guys over in news room are gonna go ape shit for this. Microsoft just released an add on to there venerable Surface table. Most commonly scene being played with by large suited children on CNN explaining to other children what an Election Map is, and more recently parodied on SNL. The add on, known as SecondLight, provides a 3rd dimension of usability to the already intensive touch surface. With the use of a second “screen” placed or held on top of the existing table a “zoom” image is generated showing the according information. In the demo above, a picture of the night time sky coupled with this second “screen” allows the user to see a more detailed image of a star system in the little window. Bet the CNN children are already itching for that extra touch fix for Election Day, think of the possibilities. *Score: PC – 1, Mac – …….*
