    Coolest thing you'll see today

    Looks awesome. I am not sure if this is feasible as a workstation, but I'm sure they can figure something out.

    Pfffft. I fail to see how that is in any way innovative - take existing touchscreen and wireless technology, attach to large screen, lay screen flat. Typical Microsoft behaviour really - all flashy lights and gimmicks, someone elses work, their badge and marketing.

    Well, there has never been a full scale operating system written for something like this in mind. The software is the cool part, not the hardware.

    Nah, this thing is awesome. It's not as easy as just using regular touchscreens, the multi-touch part of it is pretty innovative. Microsoft didn't come up with it anyway, there's a video on YouTube where Jeff Han demonstrated it a year ago.
    Input devices have hardly changed in the last few decades, I reckon something like this, along with new stuff like flexible OLED screens has the potential to really change how we use computers in the near future.

    I saw Christopher Walken building Optimus Prime today.

    This is hardly something new, or practical. The things you could end up spilling on that.

    That stuff looks pretty awesome.

    The music in the background was annoying though.

    That's awesome. The thing that gets me is how you can just place your camera and your phone on top of the table, it'll instantly recognise them and then you can transfer stuff just by dragging it across the table. Awesome.

    I dunno, I found this awesome invisible ink pen with a ultra-violet light attached in the cereal box this morning. I reckon that's the coolest thing I've seen today tbh.
