Microsoft’s original Surface now called PixelSense

Last night Microsoft announced their tablet and they called it Surface. That was a little strange considering they already had a product called Surface! Well now the original Surface is called PixelSense.


I know, it’s somewhat confusing that Microsoft would call a product Surface when they already had one, even though Surface is a great name for a tablet!

PixelSense is part of the technology that goes to make up what was the Surface. This is how Microsoft described it back in November last year:

PixelSense allows an LCD display to recognize fingers, hands, and objects placed on the screen, including more than 50 simultaneous touch points. With PixelSense, pixels in the display see what’s touching the screen and that information is immediately processed and interpreted.

Anyway, you can learn more about PixelSense at their new website.
