Microsoft Surface Sphere Would Make Cool Interactive Globes
Posted on August 12, 2008
This is new product from Microsoft Research. The Sphere uses the Microsoft Surface technology that was first introduced in Octoboer of 2007. Using Microsoft Surface on a spherical surface looks like it works best for the globe of the Earth they show in the video clip. Beyond that a flat surface either as a table or on the wall seems like it would be more useful. Gizmodo has more on the Microsoft Surface Sphere here.
