Redmond-giant updates their tablet-top touch computer.

Microsoft Surface, which was launched several years ago, had failed to capture the market despite being an impressive and one of its kind technology at that time. It only shipped a couple of thousand units, and has since became outdated with its Windows Vista interface.

Yesterday, just before their CES keynote, Microsoft unveiled a revamped version of the technology, Surface 2.0, which now features an updated interface and packs in a plethora of new features. According to CrunchGear, the device, which is a mountable interactive LCD screen, has the “largest piece of gorilla glass in any device” and that “you can drop a beer bottle on this from 18 inches without making so much as a dent.”

Surface 2.0 also uses a technology called Pixel Sense which allows the device to “see” things as each and every pixel on the device is sensor.

No other specifics were mentioned, but we believe information should be soon forthcoming.
