MS Surface Makes Casino Debut
A touch-screen table technology introduced last year by Microsoft has made its Las Vegas casino debut, the AP reported Thursday.
The Microsoft Surface technology is being being used in casino bars at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, and it allows customers do everything from order and mix their own drinks to flirt with other bargoers to watch YouTube videos. The program works by using tiny cameras to detect subtle hand movements. It had previously debuted in AT&T wireless stores, and is being rolled out in various other business applications.
The tables sell for a base price of around $10,000, the AP said.
