Surface computing coffee table

Well I am pretty sure this is an attempted re-hash of an idea I saw about 2 years ago, but even so it is still very cool. A finger driven coffee table computer allows you to send and manipulate data between devices that are resting on it. Although the product itself may have a short and not so useful lifespan. I do think the ease-of-use visualisation that this device has is worth a lot. One of the problems with software development is when you have to communicate technical ideas and business processes with a group of non-technical customers. The ability to build models of data or business processes and then have a multiple customers at once be able to see, reach out, touch and manipulate them would be very helpful indeed.

And the trekkies have got to love it.

Arstechnica has some more in-depth info
