Microsoft Surface Development

Posted 25 February 2009 - 07:43 PM

I'm trying to come up with Microsoft Surface applications. Does anyone have any ideas on applications you would like to see developed on a Surface table? If you're unfamiliar with Surface, check it out here: Microsoft Surface

I've often thought it would be fun to put my cell phone on the 'Surface' and read the GPS history and use Google Maps or Google Earth to display my travels.

Did you know that Microsoft Surface is not publicly available? The development for it is currently ran in a "sandbox" for Microsoft Partners only. To develop for Microsoft Surface, you need the Surface SDK, which is, once again, only available for Microsoft Partners.

Details here:
http://partner.surfa...es/Develop.aspx

Is your school (or some school affiliate) a Microsoft Partner? Unless this is true, your school project is impossible.
