Did you watch Minority Report ? Do you remember when Tom Cruise moves pictures and videos by taking them on the screen with his hands ?

It sounded really futurist at that time, but it was without counting on the hidden Microsoft projects. Yes, they did it, or almost.

The project is named Microsoft Surface and according to them, "it represents a bridge to the digital world".

Basically, it is a digital table (55 cm high, 55 cm by 105 cm) that allows you to manipulate digital informations, such as watching pictures and videos, planning your trip in the city, etc. The different demos on the website are quite impressive.

And it is really amazing to see that the project originally started in 2001 by Stevie Bathiche and Andy Wilson and being unveiled only two days ago.

The project is not supposed to be available at retail stores until end of 2007 and I think it will be costly... But in the meantime, and if you are in New York, you should be able to see it at the Sheraton Hotel, or also during the SIGGRAPH Conference in San Diego.
