Microsoft to show off spherical Surface next week

Published on: 2015-02-05

According to this blog at zdnet:

Microsoft listed its “multi-touch Spherical display” as one of the demos that the company will show off during its DemoFest for conference attendees next week. It seems Microsoft has pulled the references to the spherical Surface from the list of DemoFest exhibits since it first published the agenda for the show.

Our take:

Microsoft's Surface has shown up in a few retail applications so far, but has yet to be the "big thing" that they've called it.  This isn't too surprising, since multi-touch technology has been on the market for a number of years, despite their own hype to the contrary.  Now, spherical multitouch, we must admit, is something we haven't come across in the past.  We can't for the life of us think of why it might be useful -- other than as eye candy -- but original, sure.
