A look back at Microsoft Surface technology

Last week, Microsoft announced that its motion sensing technologies like Microsoft Kinect won’t be limited to PCs and video game consoles.

Sensors and display advancements will change how humans interact with computers and lead to more systems in which people gesture to operate machines, according to Microsoft’s chief research and strategy office Craig Mundie.

Microsoft will target these HUI (human user interface) technologies first at the gaming space, said Mundie. But later, he envisions, a surgeon in an operating room could move his hands over a screen and update a patient’s information while keeping the environment sterile.Back in 2008, ITBusiness.ca senior reporter Brian Jackson reported on another Microsoft touch-based technology called Microsoft Surface.
