Microsoft® Surface® 1.0


Unité tactile Microsoft® Surface® 1.0

Microsoft® Surface® 1.0 introduces a new relationship between people and technology, one that unfolds intuitively through the natural input of human touch.

In concrete terms, Microsoft® Surface® is a device which enables digital content to be directly manipulated using touch.

The 360° interface enables several users to interact with each other simultaneously, creating a particularly innovative new kind of experience.

Exclusive: AFTER-MOUSE.COM has had a Microsoft® Surface® 1.0 developer unit since early February 2009! A major reason we are considered the leader in this field with over 60 business applications developed for Surface 1.0 and over 20 ready for the Surface 2.0

A number of characteristics make the Microsoft® Surface® 1.0 unit unique:

  • Direct interaction: users interact with content through touch and gesture, with no intervening physical device such as a mouse. With the passing of the mouse, the way is open for the era of touch, the "AFTER-MOUSE.COM" era
  • Multi-touch: the unit recognizes over 50 touches simultaneously, so you can work with both hands together
  • Multi-user: the horizontal 24" x 18" (30" diagonal) screen makes it easy for several people to work together around the device
  • Object recognition: physical objects are recognized via special tags or simple shape recognition by being placed on the display
