Let it read business cards for you.

At CES 2011 recently, Microsoft had announced Surface 2.0, their table-top touch enabled computer, promising a slimmer design, improved accuracy and faster performance than the previous model.

The Surface 2 is only 4″ thick, and features the “largest piece of gorilla glass in any device” that is seemingly unbreakable. The device also uses a new technology developed by Microsoft called PixelSense. The new technology allows for the screen to track your every movement and can even read text off a piece of paper.

The advertisement below aptly demonstrates the power behind the device, showcasing the ability to collaborate on projects, view pictures, read X-ray scans and even as simple as reading a business card.

The advertisement is great, disregarding the usual ‘deliberate’ acting in such promos, but what I couldn’t understand is why does it has so many angle shots of the edge of device? Touch me confused!
