Microsoft Surface and Dynamics!

Am I dreaming or could in a few years, we could be designing and using Dynamics Applications that worked on Microsoft Surface ?! I have been in love with Microsoft surface ever since I saw the first demo. Apple ofcourse kind of ruined it for Microsoft here too .... but thats another story.

I always thought Surface made sense only in Casino's and five star Hotels ... but this is fantastic!

 "we got a new demo on the Surface. You know the Surface? It's a multi-finger-touchscreen-coffee table (yes … table (OK, not "coffee" table Smile)) from Microsoft. Now, they are developing a new Warehouse-application on it. It is showing a map of the warehouse (the different zones, bins , locations, …). It is actually an intuitive application where you can move items, create transfers and other warehouse activities by dragging and dropping … . It's linked with dynamics, so it generates the necessary activities for your warehouse employees… . Cool! Next, they showed the integration of it with the Business Process Manager … . The Surface is delivering nice graphical capabilities, where it's gong to be quite intuitive to work with the apps that are run on it."

They had the "surface table" in the Microsoft area in expo at Convergence. Pretty cool stuff. I stood in line for 10 mins waiting from my turn to play around with it. Seemed like there was 5 people always around it waiting to give it a try.
