    I did a few things for the first Surface and the SDK was very nice. Everything .NET, UI done with WPF,... Really nice for a C# guy like me I think the SDK for the Surface 2 is more or less similar. Would be awesome to have a BR interactive map, or a Surface-Touch enabled Gorgon´s Alliance

    Omni-geek ubersexy. Dig it.

    I just got an overhead projector, and I`ve been thinking about the
    various gaming possibilities involved in that. It`s not interactive
    by itself, but there are ways of connecting a Wii controller to an
    overhead. That has certain potential for gaming.

    I was thinking that given that the Surface is really a PC, you could also connect a Kinect to it, and use it to control actions (maybe not by camera recognition, but you could use the voice recognition features for some things...).

    Wish I had a million hours of free time a day
