Microsoft Surface

微軟剛發表了一種新科技,名為”Surface“,看看官方的短片你使可知道更多。 真的可以推出或普及嗎? 那要恜目以待。

Is it because Bill Gates steps down from the full time role? Or the change of technology? Competitiveness between sliverlight and Flex/Apollo?  Or the advance developme of Flash? Or the return and the success of Apple/Mac/iPod? It seems that Microsoft became more visual and multimedia-fous than before.

Microsoft just introduced a new technology category and a user-interface revolution called “Surface“. Take a look at the official flash video and you will know more. Video speaks louder than words. But is it deliverable? We will know later.

My favourite scene inside the video is that you put a glass on “Surface” and there is words and bubbles around…..LOL!

I love all the sexy and colorful visuals.  Here is a very good infographical movie illustrating  the principles of nuclear technology for a French energy company.

Hmm….For me, nuclear technology is quite dangerous somehow. I still remembered the horrible scenes of the Chernobyl Disaster  TV news report in 1986 when I was  still a little kid.  Anyone still remember this accident? Nowadays, most of our electricity is generated in this way already. Could be have other greener and safer alternatives?

Don’t miss the “Get the Glass!” interactive game!

In fact, several design site has introduced this “Get the Glass”  interactive game. But I can’t help but featuring this game in my blog, which is in excellent design, cool animation and interactive motion graphics . It is an outstanding project created by a Swedish-based web studio – North Kingdom.
