Seamless Computing and the Windows Phone

You may have heard mention about seamless computing but a presentation at Microsoft's TechEd Australia 2011 really brings the concept home. Nsquared is an Australian software development company that specializes in surface applications. Their keynote presentation at TechEd utilized various platforms that included Windows Phone 7, Surface, Windows 7, Kinect and Silverlight to demo the potential seamless computing has.

We've seen such technology concepts used in movies and television shows and seeing the technology used in a live demo definitely ups the coolness factor.  Everything used in the video is commercially available and it will be interesting to see what mainstream applications for seamless computing will surface in the near future.

  • Surface is really cool, cant wait for one of those on my desk. The tablet/ big screen / Kinect was clunky though and that importing that lamp was pure fantasy. If it had a load of jaggies around it I may have beleived that bit little more.
