CES 2011 – Surface 2

Surface Logo 2.0

EL DOSurface logo

This post is suppost to keep track of interesting news that’s shooting out left and right from CES this week. (Like Xolotl’s dying sperm shots in Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light). (the tragedy here, is that I don’t know ANYONE who cares about this CES tech shit half as much as I do)

Microsoft Surface version 2
(aka Samsung’s SUR40 tv) sounds awesome. AWESOME! I’m stunned this isn’t bigger news. … I guess people see it as a giant iPad that costs more than twice most high end tvs? (or they will soon? if they ever even hear about it?) butttttt. What’s really exciting is the “pixelsense” tech, which claims to be a bunch of camera sensors mixed in with the pixels, turning the whole display into a camera. Apple patented this years ago. but, microsoft made it. HMM! (actually, no one has laid out the tech exactly. who knows how many sensors there are).

I’ll rant more about below, after listing off some interesting tech announcements

PHASEtable: projector testing

uh, I currently don’t feel like posting detailed rants about all the ways in which I don’t think the NEC WT510 project I have will work for a multitouch table.
I tried a couple things with it. soo. i’m just going to poop out this “diary” entry to be done with it. better to focus on success! which will be coming soon. i’m sure.

so. ahem.

PhaseTable: testes

just posting this so I can test out rss feed gathering over at
my devious plan is to grab any post here (in my “creative pursuits” blog) and list it, if it has proper keyword. or tag. or category. or whatever. I have an email explaining it, from friend Ian.


Doctor Ian wrote (well, pasted into an email):
Example of usage:

(really just posting these links here so I don’t have to fish out that old email again)

PhaseTable: Phase zero

Well, I’d been meaning to keep a proper diary of my progress crafting my own multitouch table. It’s important.
But I keep neglecting to post. Not sure when I began really. Several groups of photos from several tests burning a hole into my ANTICIPATION GLANDS. soon.

at this date, all I know for sure is that I had purchased the URL (and had probably posted just a simple sketch of the logo idea). (and logos/links for OptiTrack and NUI Group)

and I’d posted a hello over at the NUI group.
(and a question no one would ever answer)
