Microsoft’s Surface computer showed up during this Criminal Minds this week.
The TV spot showed Microsoft’s Surface computer for a brief amount of time. Disappointingly the program chose to use the first generation of Surface and not the brand new Samsung powered device. Microsoft demonstrated and announced its Surface 2 computer during CES earlier this year.
Microsoft’s new Surface is just 4″ thick and includes the biggest piece of gorilla glass ever bonded to an LCD. Microsoft has also improved the touch technology behind Surface. First generation hardware used a camera underneath the top of the device. With Surface 2, Microsoft has introduced pixel sense technology. The new technology uses infrared sensors inside the screen and hardware decoding to allow developers to create unique new applications for Surface. Microsoft demonstrated the ability for the cameras to read the text on a piece of paper accurately. Microsoft Surface is used in some retail banks and casinos in the United States.
