Touch Screen Tables In Las Vegas

Touch Screen Tables In Las Vegas
Gaming & Play

In the second commercial deployment of Microsoft’s Surface technology (AT&T stores were first), The Rio Casino in Las Vegas is debuting Surface enabled tables in its “iBar ultralounge”. Patrons will be able to interact with the touch screen tables for a variety of purposes. A program called Flirt lets them video chat and exchange messages with others in the bar, and they can order drinks for themselves or friends across the room. Time killing games and an area map/guide are also included. Looks potentially useful, but I wonder how long till these $10,000.00 machines break down from spilled drinks? See the table in action here (warning: really corny promotional video).
