Maybe it could replace the old Xerox Photocopy machine at office Christmas parties? Instead of the hot office chick who drinks too much jumping up on the Xerox machine making photocopies of her bare ass, she can hop up on the Surface Table bare-assed and stream it LIVE over the internets!!!
I'm unsure if they're trying to use the table's name for PR reasons (was it that popular?) or their marketing department couldn't come up with anything better so they decided to confuse the market more.
they should put these in the high tech arcade shops and have games available for them. be great if hologram goes it. i can see some sleek games being build for it. However this piece of tech current state would be useful in hospitals in a vertical lay out. and maybe replace MTA map-boards (NYC) with one of this with real time traffic for commuters. perhaps shopping malls too.
I always thought that the future of dinning is OLED paper screens as menus or the whole table being a menu.
The cool thing with the table/menu idea would be that you can page your waitress and never get bad service again. Empty drink? Just press the page waitress button on your tablet/table.
