Microsoft Surface: In Homes In 3 Years

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 As in, so cool that every single gadget in your home looks wimpy and outdated next to it.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 touchscreen computer. 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 (via Engadget 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.
