Microsoft's Surface hasn't even rolled out yet, but the company is already lining up a spherical makeover for the touch-sensitive tabletop. According to ZDNet, Microsoft showed a spherical Surface prototype around Redmond campus. It would be interesting to see how Microsoft managed to stuff a rear projection unit and IR cameras into a sphere. And I am curious as to what the applications of such a model would be. Surface table makes sense to me (see video), a surface sphere not so much.
