Microsoft promises touchscreen PC no thicker than sheet of glass

Posted on Sunday, September 19 2010 @ 12:05:54 CEST by

Microsoft has set the goal to deliver a touchscreen PC that is no thicker than a sheet of glass within the next three years, according to the firm's principal researcher. The device is based on the Surface device that was presented in 2007 but it will be radically thinner.
"What will happen is that Surface will become no thicker than a sheet of glass. It’s not going to have any cameras or projectors because the cameras will be embedded in the device itself."

Buxton claims Microsoft is developing a new type of screen technology to make the miniaturisation possible. "The best way to think about it is like a big LCD where there’s a fourth pixel in every triad. So there’s red, green, and blue pixels giving you light, and a fourth pixel which is a sensor that will capture stuff."
