Microsoft Surface 2.0
10 years ago
As some may know Microsoft has release info and a new website for Microsoft Surface 2.0. The new surface looks great and at just 4″ thick it is now a lot more adaptable than the table style of version 1. Customised legs can be attached to the unit or it cam be mounted to a wall. Surface 2 uses some new technologies that Microsoft has developed. The first is per-pixel IR detection, so basically each pixel on the screen has its own tiny ‘IR Camera’ so the which enabled the screen to see anything placed on top. Surface 2 runs on Windows 7 this time around instead of the custom Surface software of version 1 and now has integrated support for Windows Phone 7. The top surface is covered with a huge sheet of Gorilla Glass, that largest to ever be bonded to an LCD. And finally the unit is being manufactured by Samsung. Check out the demo video below and the link to the new website.
