The TED talks are meant to be instant fav., the time you see them. Here is one of most recent ones from March 2007. Blaise Aguera y Arcas of Microsoft shows a very interesting photo browsing, visualization, mutildimensionality technology called Photosynth and features which are mind-boggling and just leaves you wondering how technology will affect our lives in years to come. During the video, hear how the people gasp and hush's while he shows the awesome zooms he does on photos. He even got standing ovation for his talk, something which some people might probably won't relate to Microsoft in first place :). One of the best tech. demos of 2007.
A few weeks back, I posted about another cool demo by Microsoft, HERE. Also related to Jeff Han TED Talk in 2006. And, I thought it still might be few years before it comes out in market. But day before yesterday, Microsoft released the first commercial versions of it, calling it Surface Computing. (MS LINK). And wow, it def. takes computing to next level. Check out popular mechanics first preview of the Surface Computing.
