  1. 3M is showing off its 84-inch multi-touch table at CES this year and The Verge has provided its own, brief hands-on. Reminiscent of Microsoft's original "Surface" tabletop touchscreen (video), the gigantic capacitive table is the successor to last year's 46-inch...

    Somewhere, a multi-millionaire dungeon master is rejoicing.

    Oh man, this would be great. I'm still planning on a >42inch table-PC, but the only custom solutions are touch-screen overlays with infra-red that have max 3 points touch and considerable lag specs. :(

    Looks like a bacteria farm in the making. Clever though.

    Your cell phone is dirtier and your keyboard, OMG your keyboard is a biological wasteland ready to kill you at a moments notice. Anyway, don't worry so much about that since it can be easily cleaned and there are MUCH worse things you touch everyday.

    I think they're using it now on, "Hawaii Five-O". (Either that, or it's a CGI wannbe copy).

    The lissome Grace Park. AKA "Kono". waves her lithe and slender arms over it, caressing its smooth and inviting, warm glass surface , while the rest of the squad stares mesmerized at the images that have just appeared on the wall monitors. Meanwhile, the audience gets to take in one of the most awesome "displays" nature has to offer, all of Ms Park, head to toe from the rear....!!!:)

    I like the "big boards they use on the TV news. The anchors can make expansive gestures, as they dramatically announce, "let there be weather".

    And the audience saw the weather, and it was good! (Well, as least as often as not).. .

    Yes, but generally, speaking, they're more fun playing with than a cell phone. (At least for us old folks).

    After this post, I'm going to tackle my novel, "Fifty Shades of Computing"!....:eek:
