That's sorta a silly question... why do you have 2900? A 1900 could basically do everything that your high-end card can do but a bit slower/uglier. Why do you have nice LCD when a 14" CRT could do everything.


This is an improved interface allowing better human-machine interaction. Watch Minority Report for an example. It allows you to be more productive.

It's a giant tablet PC. We all know how those turned out: Under powered and over cost.

Then again, these tables aren't really targeted to the common consumer. Maybe it will take off.

they used a similar interface in The Matrix, which i think proves that this type of interface will only lead us to a dark and dystopic future.

Working for a competing company and having actually used this type of device I can say that there is definately a niche market for these. It is not aimed at the consumer or even the prosumer it is aimed for business class buyers.
Hopefully that with higher production numbers and research they can get these kinds of things into a living room, because the possibilities are amazing.

Come on, people said the same thing about the computer vs the calculator...what can it do that I can't do already. You all sound like a bunch of cave men scared of fire.

And as for the cost your just plain stupid or rich to even think about purchasing this any time soon. It makes about as much sense a buying a $1000.00 pentium extreme last year when a year later an E2140 will smoke it for 1/10 the price.

This goes for any new tech though (blu-ray for ex.), if you/we made it this many years without this product, why the hell pay huge prices when its first introduced.

Be patient...your e-peen will thank you.

While I wouldn't have put it quite so colorfully, your sentiment is generally true. The people that do not see this (or something like this) in the majority of homes in ten years are simply closed minded, and probably believe that the box PCs we have today are the only way that computers will ever work.

I was at Wired magazine's NexFest. GE had a "kitchen of the future" exhibit. It used very similar technology. You place your shopping bag down on the counter. Using RFID tags, it would identify what you purchase and offer recipe suggestions. Displays were hidden under the counter and inside doors.

to answer that, no

Quick Question - how many new gadgets do something new? most improve something already being done, or make something faster, or easier, or more convenient. many gadgets are more attractive (apple) and do not neccessarily employ new tech at all (iPhone, iPod)

just a few examples there, all the chinese clones of products could be used as well.

oh, and i cannot fathom these upcoming advances in tech -- simply brilliant. makes me want to be a physics major (in optics, so i could study about new optical storage media)

Widescreen plasma screen TVs use to cost $20,000. Now they cost less than $3000 in 5 years? It's called progress.

How do you compare a used car or a Surface PC? If you are even contemplating about buying one.... I am pretty sure you don't have a used car.
