The New Generation Of Computer

MICROSOFT SURFACE

Microsoft Corp. has chosen what it sees as the next generation in PC designs -- a computer the size and shape of a coffee table with a flat, touch-screen display -- as the third major product it has designed and is branding for the consumer electronics market.


The company today revealed its 5-year-old "Milan" project, a computer that uses wireless autosync and touch-screen technology to allow users and devices to interact with files and applications using a tabletop screen. The company designed and is branding the computer, as it did with consumer electronics products such as the Xbox game console and the Zune MP3 player.


To accompany Milan, Microsoft renamed a team within its Entertainment and Devices Division called New Consumer Products as "Surface Computing." General Manager Pete Thompson leads the group, which has worked quietly in new projects to give computers and other devices more human interfaces.
