Microsoft Surface SUR40 multitouch table slims bulk & price [Video]

Microsoft has spilled pricing details on its new second-gen Surface SUR40 multitouch table, launched the company's CES 2011 keynote yesterday, and slimming down the original surface into a slick 4-inch thick slab. The new SUR40 Surface 2.0 - which is manufactured by Samsung, and has a Full HD 1080p 40-inch display covered with a sheet of toughened Gorilla Glass - will be priced at $7,600 rather than the original Surface's $12k+ sticker.

Exhibit and media design firm Ideum have cocked a snook at Microsoft with the launch of their MT2 Table, a multitouch-table which, at 50-inches running at 1280 x 720, is both larger and higher resolution than Microsoft's Surface.  The MT2 Table, which can respond to multiple points of contact across the display and recognize gestures, is intended for museum use, and as such has an aircraft-grade aluminum frame and thick tempered glass top.  Underneath there's a 2100 ANSI projector with a 2000:1 contrast ratio.

Microsoft SecondLight Surface adds dual-display to multitouch table

Despite only just releasing the SDK for their multitouch Surface table, Microsoft have already updated the system with a second layer of projection functionality.  As well as the current projected display, the new SecondLight Surface is capable of throwing a second image onto any translucent material - for instance a piece of paper - held above the table.  Developed by the company's Cambridge, UK research arm, SecondLight can be used to display, say, an image of a car on the table-top together with a moveable cutaway schematic on a handheld screen held above.

Eyebeam are looking to bring DIY multitouch to the masses with their open-source Cubit project.  Promising a touchscreen table in the style of Microsoft's Surface, only with a far smaller $500-1,000 build cost, Eyebeam have made the hardware schematics and software source code available for anyone to download.  They also sell a kit that includes the table, frosted surface and most of the electronics, with builders only needing to supply the computer, a simple projector and a webcam.

Microsoft Surface Pro Review

Microsoft Surface Pro Review

Microsoft met some resistance with its first Surface tablet, but that isn't stopping the company from making a second attempt, this time with a full copy of Windows 8. Where the Surface RT left would-be tableteers confused with its partial app support, the Surface Pro is Windows on far more familiar territory: Intel silicon inside, and the full flexibility of a regular PC, simply with a touchscreen up-front.

Does Microsoft's own-brand slate finally put those criticisms to rest, and is this the tablet you should have in your bag? Read on for our full review.
