Unique User Experience Explored with Sphere Computing Prototype

Microsoft researchers are unveiling a prototype that uses an internal projection and vision system to bring a spherical computer display to life. People can touch the surface with multiple fingers and hands to manipulate photos, play games, spin a virtual globe, or watch 360-degree videos.

Sphere was to be shown publicly for the first time at Microsoft's Faculty Summit in Redmond according to an article in the Seattle PI, Here comes Sphere: Microsoft debuts computing in round.

The idea that is demonstrated is that many more surfaces will become computer displays, with embedded microprocessors, in the years to come.
