Microsoft’s Surface Heading Into the Home as a Cheap Entertainment Product in 3 Years

Microsoft’s Surface Heading Into the Home as a Cheap Entertainment Product in 3 Years

Over the last couple of weeks, Microsoft's Surface has been shown off just as much as what researchers were really trying to show off, like virtual joysticks or commanding robots remotely. That's because Surface is a very cool idea, and a lot of fun to actually use. The unfortunate part comes in the fact that it's not everywhere, and not a lot of people have ever been able to get their fingers on it. And right now, it doesn't look like that's going to change. But, Microsoft does have plans to change it in the future.

Microsoft Surface SP1 released; promise of Windows 7 & WM7 integration

Microsoft have released Service Pack 1 for users of their Surface multitouch table, and while that may not affect many readers of SlashGear it comes with some news that likely will.  The Surface team have been tasked with developing a set of standardized gestures and motion controls, that will be used not only on their own multitouch computer but in Windows 7 and Windows Mobile 7; that means better integration between Surface, gestures, multitouch and touch across all of Microsoft's platforms.

DIY Multitouch table project offers low-cost alternative to Microsoft Surface

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.

Surface 3 LTE rolls out to businesses first, consumers later

Surface 3 LTE rolls out to businesses first, consumers later

Microsoft seems to have struck a chord with the Surface 3, if the Interwebs' reception of the "Surface Pro 3 mini" is any indication. And what could be better than a 10.1-inch Surface 3 running full Windows 8.1? Why, a 10.1-inch Surface running full Windows 8.1 with LTE, of course! It's an expected and natural progression for such a mobile tablet anyway. But don't take out those credit cards just yet, as the LTE-enabled Surface 3 won't be available to regular buyers until after a few weeks or so.

Microsoft strikes deal with AOL over its ad business

Microsoft is narrowing its focus, and as such has been pushing some of its extraneous efforts toward others. Earlier today word surfaced that Microsoft has struck a deal with Uber that will see workers and assets being transferred, and now it is being followed up with another announcement: AOL is getting the brunt of Microsoft’s advertising operations, as is advertising tech company AppNexus. The AOL deal in particular is said to involve a 10 year partnership, and under it AOL is going to be carrying search results from Bing instead of from Google.

Microsoft Surface Hub wall computer is not for you

Microsoft Surface Hub wall computer is not for you

Microsoft introduces the Surface Hub, a wall-based display made for businesses - not consumers. If the price didn't do you in, the functionality certainly will. While using such a massive piece of equipment is certainly an interesting possibility for the average consumer, this 4K 84-inch display will facilitate meetings at your business. That's what it's made for. Not playing Angry Birds. Not acting as an 84-inch touch arcade... though using one as a pinball machine or a digital air hockey arena WOULD be neat.

Japan’s Takram develops paper-based input for projected display

The idea of collaborating with coworkers in person while using a tablet the size of a table-top has always sounded cool — it was Microsoft's first vision for the Surface, after all — but it's still likely to be a long ways off. However, Japanese design firm Takram has come up with an idea for an interactive digital table that is just as cool, but even more elegant in execution. It's completely based on paper, or rather "On the Fly Paper," and it developed for Intel's Japanese Collaboration Center.
