I’m in Redmond for some meetings with Microsoft’s Surface team, and we had an informal meet and greet last night. During that time, we got to get our hands on the Surface and see some pretty cool stuff, one item in particular had not previously been seen outside the Surface team – Live Labs Seadragon running on a Surface. These pictures are gigapixel in size, and just watch how seamlessly they are manipulated, scattered about, zoomed, etc. We also have some fun with another demo app towards the end, with Slashgear’s Vincent Nguyen face. I gotta tell you, this Surface stuff goes way beyond multi-touch. It is a whole different paradigm in computing, and the Surface team is leading this pioneering effort.
