How cool would this be?
A table that looks like a video game table from the 80s (I remember them fondly from the local Pizza Hut in Charlestown Road, in particular) but that runs a full-powered, modern computer that you ineract with via a...well...it's not quite a touch screen from what I can tell, but it acts like one.
The surface has some version of wi-fi that allows you to drop files into the computer simply by placing the item on the surface of the table.
How very cool.
I would suggest, however, a tilting screen to let the computer replace your local TV, just tip the thing up and watch television, movies, YouTube and everything else on your coffee table.
I think I'm kinda am looking forward to the surface computer.
