Microsoft Surface and Magical Object Interaction

Work at InfoStrat has been really exciting recently. We are getting more and more multi-touch projects for both Surface and Windows 7. We've created some really interesting interfaces and applications and soon we'll be able to share more.

For now, I can share this video. We built a suite of Microsoft Surface applications for a well-known museum. These are designed to be used by young children. During user testing we found that it works great for them and also does pretty well at bringing out the inner child from people of all ages. I'll post more details on the findings of our user testing in a future post.

The theme of the applications was "light" and we designed them to really take advantage of the unique capabilities of Surface: bringing people together socially and physical object interaction.

Let me know what you think!

By the way, if you're interested in working for InfoStrat and you know WPF, we're hiring! Take a look at our job posting for WPF experts as well as Microsoft CRM and Microsoft SharePoint experts.


  1. This stuff is brilliant. Would love to see how you handled the raw image processing.

  2. Thanks!

    Actually we did not do any raw image processing. It was all regular touch contacts and tagged objects.
