First Look: Surface Remix Project shows a different way to Click In

1:02 /

With the Surface Remix Project, Microsoft wants you to rethink what it means for a tablet to be productive.

Hi, everybody. It's Tim Stevens with CNET here at the Microsoft Surface 2 event. The company just unveiled 2 new tablets, the whole smooth new keyboard but one of the most interesting things was the Surface Remix Project. This is a new type of Touch Cover that will attach on to your Surface Pro 2 or Surface 2 or even the [unk] Surfaces and basically give you a simplified set of DJ-like controls. There's a grid of 16 [unk] to turn on and turn off tracks, three volume controls and play and pause controls as well. The idea is that you can do simple DJ controls, but really the bigger idea is that Microsoft is trying to push forward new usage for their Surface tablets. It showed a short video as students kind of coming up with new and interesting things where you could do different type coverage, for keyboards, for playing the piano on that sort of thing. So it's exciting to think about what Microsoft could do in the future and this is just the first step. Again, it's called the Microsoft Surface Remix Project. And they say it's gonna be available on the 22nd along with the new Surface 2 and the Surface Pro 2. Again this is Tim with CNET talking about the Microsoft Surface Remix Project.
