| A post from the Compiz Fusion Blog informed us about some interesting things 
| that are under development. Imagine a very cheap 3D interface with head

A large car-maker in France chose Linux desktops because of the prospects of
modeling and interaction in 3-D. It will come soon.

| to Kubuntu. This computer looked remarkably like Microsoft’s new 
| Surface touch table. Funny thing is the reactable has been around 
| over three years and research has been going on much longer than that.

| Jeff Han, consulting research scientist for NYU's Department of 
| Computer Science, developed a multi-touch interactive graphical 
| interface, which he presented at the TED conference over a year 
| ago. His research turned into its own company, Perceptive Pixel.
| Now it seems Microsoft completely ripped the idea and created 
| Microsoft Surface.
