Microsoft's Surface project is cool. As in, so cool that every single gadget in your home looks wimpy and outdated next to it. You've got an iPad on your coffee table? The Surface is a gigantic coffee-table sized touchscreencomputer. You and your guests can browse the Internet, control the TV or set up one hell of a D&D battle-mat...or at least you could, if the Surface didn't cost between $5,000-$10,000.
There's good news though. In an interview with The Globe and Mail (viaEngadget Microsoft's principal researcher outed that the next Surface edition will be "no thicker than a sheet of glass" and far less costly. Cameras will be added to the table and it will be marketed as a cheap home entertainment product.
The timeline for this transition to household gadget? 3 years.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
