Wow that's awesome. Right around the 3 minute mark where it talks about transfering photos and other files without having to plug anything in is really exciting.

What company makes the components for Microsoft? That's a stock I want to own.

The main researcher's company is called Perceptive Pixel; but MS is going to run away with it.

Interesting. What I found most impressive is that the tabletop treats other electronic devices like icons on a desktop and intuitively communicate with each other. Multi-touch sure isn't nothing new, but this is promising technology. ;-D

One of the coolest things to me was the glass on the coffee table and how the computer showed bubbles coming out of it.
