Microsoft Surface SUR40 Video Transcript
-Hi! Josh Lowensohn here at CES 2011 and I'm standing in front of Microsoft Surface, the SUR-40. This is a collaboration between Microsoft and Samsung and I am joined here by Panos Panay, the general manager of the Microsoft Surface Group, and why don't you just tell us some of the technology that has gone into this new unit. -Absolutely. Thanks Josh. Pixel sense essentially is it-- it comes to life as you touch this. What we've done is we've basically found a way within the LCD itself to not only have the 2 million pixels, red, green, and blue as you would find off from a standard LCD, but we also next to every pixel that is in the LCD, we also have a sensor. So, essentially, there are 2 million sensors right now embedded into this panel. Now that there are sensors throughout this entire product, you can see fingers, you can then see hands, and there is no really limit to what this unit can see as you put it on, so eventually, you can put objects on it. You're giving all these data to developers to go and develop off of. -So they are gonna be able to create apps that they couldn't with the first version? -They're gonna create apps that similar to the first version, but they're gonna be able to do it in the form factor that now that is loved by so many people out there. -One thing as I wanna see is the new Bing app, so this lets people search on surface. -Okay. What we do here is we take advantage of you can do a search here if you chose to, but you can also take advantage of pixel sense by using an object. So in this case, we will just use a poker chip and so when put the poker chip now, it'll give you a search case and I'm just gonna search on that. Yeah, and let's see what was inside our [unk] -And this is recognizing a tag on the bottom of this [unk] -Yeah, this is actually using a tag to simplify for what we are doing here, and so, ultimately, you put it down, it gives you the search option and then it gives you some kind of some pictures to look at and we go and look at these. -Well that's the first look at the new surface from Microsoft. I am Josh Lowensohn. Thanks for watching.
