Hardware, Embedded Systems Okay, I think we can all agree on the fact that while Microsoft's Surface machines might not be particularly useful for most of us, we all secretly want one, or something similar. Thanks to EXOPC, you'll now be able to: for $1299, you'll have a 40" multitouch interactive desk.

I'm just happy to see stuff that looks like the kind of things we thought we'd have around now, when we were imagining things last century. We're supposed to have hover cars and sky-lanes by 2015! ... Let's make the world less boring.


Nah, we hardly see it IMHO; probably it's more a sort of confirmation bias, we "seek out" those predictions which were rougly not-entirely-incorrect. While many (most?) of the things we imagine are trash.
It coming to druition would be really boring - hardly anybody envisioned computers, mobile phones the way they now evolve; or even, say, trains (plus, my post nearby)
