    Don't forget the medical neck & back treatment you'll need after crouching over it.

    Re: Microsoft Surface

    Think point is the amount of software that comes available for it for example if became big in education then amount of software that could be written for it.

    To be fair research department might not come up with original ideas but they come up with new spin on and often those new spins make the product very successful..

    You could have your own display table just like they have in the Enterprise engine room

    Not sure about the direct educational benefits of these. I can see big out-to-impress corporates having them in the reception area for visitors to play with, or possibly even information kiosk style things in libraries, museums, etc, I just can't see them in a classroom.

    I think where this is useful is in same place as whiteboards but with smaller group.

    I do think they key here is software that gets written for it as product on it own it no educational benefit is limited but with right software it could be powerful tool..
