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 doubt it would be cost effective to build a very large touch sensor plate.

The trick that makes Microsoft Surface work is that it doesn't use touch sensors at all. It's based on cameras instead, so it should be able to work for any surface of arbitrarily large size, as long as the cameras have enough resolution.
