Even in your home I think it would be nice. Say, you invite some friends, and you want to play a game. The table would become a game table. I also like the idea of choosing what to order there, though I wouldn't eat on that table.
i like the look of it but what if a component fails? you have to buy a new table NNNNOOOOO!!!! i also cant see them being child friendly its like a tv you hit it hard enough it will break its only a matter of time.
Yeah, they open right up. I messed with Surface at the Interop Web 2.0 Expo in NYC a few months ago. Its a very great interface. Very user friendly. They even have apps for hospitals, rental car companies, pretty much anything you can imagine. I definitely want one! And the glass surface is nice and thick, so that should help keep it in one piece. I really hope that that gets as mainstream as the Windows OS itself. Its a very fun piece of hardware.
