This machine is changing the way we use technology by introducing a new fun, easy, and exciting way to complete personal and or business tasks that are completed with technology. overview The Microsoft Surface itself is a multi-touch coffee table computer that will change the way people think about computers. The purpose of this machine is to make consumer and business productivity easier and more efficient. The Microsoft Surface does this by making file sharing between different devices fun and easy. This machine can also improve communication, and this machine allows multiple users interact on this machine at the same time. These improvements are made possible because a user actually interacts with the machine, and the machine can recognize certain things like symbols, hand gestures, and objects. This machine is revolutionizing how we communicate, share files, and manage different devices. Surface vision System •Finger context = Blobs

microsoft surface it can Help with shopping?! Because it is hard to judge products, such as surfboards, by just looking at them on a shelf, with Microsoft Surface users could take the tag and scan it on the surface to see their item like real life. They can also customize their item of interest, too. To pay for it the customer can pay with a Windows smart phone by placing it on the surface, and the phone will have the customizations saved. This is very time saving if a customer does not want to make a decision whether or not to buy. The customer can go home, sleep on it, and return the next day and have his customizations saved. How does Microsoft Surface work? At a high level, Surface uses cameras to sense objects, hand gestures and touch. This user input is then processed and the result is displayed on the surface using rear projection. Brittnee Bullington
