Microsoft’s New Surface Interactive Table Sees Your Point [CES 2012]
The screen of SUR40 supplied by Samsung can see multiple users' hands - leading to evolved natural user interface.
At CES 2012, Microsoft showed PSFK a new update to their Surface computer. Steve Clayton explained that the interactive table uses a screen supplied by Samsung that employs four pixels rather than the standard three RGB pixels because the additional pixel is a camera. This feature makes the horizontal screen a giant lens and therefore offers improved natural user interface. That means that the screen doesn’t need to be touched because it can see your fingers.
