Manual Deskterity demoed on Surface, Tablet and Phone

Get Microsoft Silverlight

As we await for news from Microsoft regarding their tablet/slate strategy at CES next month, it is great to see a research project using pen and touch still alive and now expanding to different devices. When we first read about the Manual Deskterity project, it was just a research demo video. Considering how many compelling projects Microsoft unfortunately kills every year, I was glad to see that this one was still alive and demoed at a recent campus tour. My hope is to see these features incorporated into the yet announced tablets, just like the Street Slide project made it into the new Bing update.
