A few years back Microsoft launched into a new innovative area of PC computing when it introduced the Microsoft Surface. It was basically a table with an ultra-cool touch screen built in. People could then be sitting around a table interacting with this computer making the whole experience enjoyable and intuitive. Now Microsoft has released the Microsoft Surface 2 taking the concept to a whole new level!
There is one difference that is noticeable with off the bat. The first Microsoft Surface was quite a bit thicker, almost a whole box underneath the table. This was because they needed cameras to detect touch. The new Microsoft Surface 2 is only 4 inches thin with a dual-core Windows 7 computer inside. They’re able to pull it off because of Pixel Sense, a new technology created by Microsoft. Basically there are infrared sensors all throughout the screen so each pixel is actually acts as a camera. This allows the screen to actually “see” objects as they touch it.
