(Found this on TechCruch today…) As Microsoft works on making every available surface a computer screen, a recent demo of Microsoft’s Surface Sphere has, well, surfaced.
Could this be technology’s version of the crystal ball? This makes me start imagining 3D objects rendered inside the sphere that we can zoom in on, manipulate, and view from different angles. Anyway, fun to think about.
PS — Matt, I’d like one of these so I can have it set as a globe to put on my desk. There should be enough in our EGJ budget, y’think?
PSS – Just found a related article at Ars Technica.
Howdy folks! I’m an Instructional Designer at UT Dallas. I have a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education from Angelo State University and a Master’s in Computer Education and Cognitive Systems from the University of North Texas. I’ve been working in edtech for 11 years. Hmm… what else? I’m a *huge* fan of that little Irish band called U2, and I’m a bigtime Firefly/Serenity advocate.
