Microsoft's Surface learning to get along

Culture
[ Music ] ^M00:00:04 >> I'm Ina Fried with CNET News.com. I'm here at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas with Mark Bolger of Microsoft Surface Computing team. We're here to get an update on where Surfaces at. Mark, you did had a chance to show us Surface when Microsoft first introduced it last year. Where are things progressed since then? >> We've made great progress with Microsoft Surface and we have shipped up to K units and the hardware to our partners and in the process right now of developing content and there'll be beginning to implement and begin showing Surface units in their locations in the Spring. And what I have today to show you is several other applications. Actually, I got one called Snowboarding, another called Wine Bar. They begin to illustrate how we can customize and personalize the experience for people in retail environments. Now, what we wanna do is paint the Vision for Surface computing and use these applications to really inspire the people to begin thinking about how surface can be used in a variety of different environments. Imagine walking into a snowboard store and you're in the market for snowboard. And you're faced with a wall of opportunities. There might be a hundred snowboards on the wall. Take a look at a list of details that I might be able to bring on to the snowboard. For instance, if I wanted to use this skeleton cross bones, I could tap on it and then I could change the color to any color that I'd like to use. Say for instance red and then I can bring this icon over to Surface and I can change its position like I change its size and had bleed over the edge. And then with the front I can turn it over to the back and I can actually add my signature to the snowboard and I can do that just simply by signing this. >> Let's see the Wine Bar. >> Okay, great. I could place my hands down on my restaurant table. The list of wines will be available for us interactively and you could interact by just browsing through the wines with your finger or what you'd like to do is just select red wines and then we could actually go down into Acidity. You could change the acidity, maybe the body and then place an order. And what happens at that point is something that's pretty exciting, and there's a virtual coaster appears on Surface. And what's unique about this coaster is that my waiter can have a glass that's uniquely identified to me with an optical tag and then he or she can pour wine into that glass and through the PLS system, it can be identified as my unique combination and when that wine is brought to the table and placed on the Surface, the information about that wine is brought up for me to be able to learn more about the wine right on the spot. Then I can begin to actually explore some of the items. So for instance, if I wanna take a look at what food pairings might be good for me to order with this wine, I can see the [inaudible] actually recommendation. If I like this particular type of wine I could actually press and have it e-mailed to me or what I could do to your point is I could bring up an opportunity to [inaudible] post that wine to my Windows Live space and I can go back later and I could write about it and have a community base approach and offer that specific wine. ^M00:03:00 [ Music ]
