Surface was back in action at PDC for another round of heady developer talks, loads of Surface Q&A time in the booth and a steady stream of folks still amazed at what this technology can do and the implications it has for Microsoft’s future with NUI products. Once again our dev team is on hand to show off some of the latest applications and help people get hands on with Surface. A big attraction this year in the booth seems to be the dedicated unit which features all of the Hard Rock Surface applications that were recently deployed at the new Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas. It proves to be a natural seque in our conversations when folks ask about real world examples of how customers are using Surface. Beyond the booth, Surface is keeping attendees connected and networking through our “conference connection” cards and application on units spread throughout the show. Each attendee receives a tagged ID card that uniquely recognizes them at key Surface units. Using this card on Surface allows them to then share their contact info with other attendees, as well as keep up on real time Twitter and Flickr feeds from PDC. It’s proving popular as the team registered over a 1,000 attendees in just one day.
We’ll be back in the booth tomorrow, as well as hosting a table at the Ask the Experts session in the evening. Stop on by to learn more about Surface, how you can get the SDK and meet some of the technical team behind the development scenes.
