    I've got another news about Microsoft new technologies and they called it Microsoft Sphere...yet this is just a prototype from Microsoft Research.

    It's Microsoft surface in a different form. Interesting, but will anyone use it?

    If its a sphere, it will be a bit hard to use

    Well it's not as advance as Microsoft Surface, I think it will not be hit on most of home use but it may be useful in Museums, Library, etc. I think the Earth Globe feature would be useful for educational purposes but they must improve it.

    As for now, it's prototype and it could add more useful features in the future.

    I would totally use it, if not for mainstream computing it will still be an interesting thing to have.

    totally

    I would definately use it cause it looks so kool and sounds like a lot of fun. I can see where designing panoramas would be easier. Hopefully They will release it to the generak population for everyone to have.
