Microsoft Oahu - multitouch Surface for Home

The recent marketing survey delivered by Microsoft hints the Oahu, a multi-touch computing device that is the Microsoft Surface for home users.

You can interact with Oahu by touching the screen, instead of using a mouse, and more than one person can interact with Oahu at the same time. You and others can move objects on the screen with your hands and touch icons to open up programs, games, or music. People using the device can also use their fingertips to expand and shrink objects on the screen. The screen recognizes people’s hand movements and touches and reacts accordingly. You can bring up an on-screen keyboard to input information. Oahu also works with other devices (such as digital cameras, cell phones, and MP3 players) by getting information from or sending information to them.

The Oahu will probably allow 4 people to use at the same time and have an onscreen keyboard. Users can use multiple fingers to interacr with the device. The possible price is $1499.
