Microsoft's Surface Computing and Virtualization

I know Microsoft's surface computing announcement wasn't about virtual worlds, but have you considered the impact of networked surface computing and virtualized spaces on our future interactions?

Think for a minute about the mash up of virtualized interfaces (surface computing) and the immersiveness of networked virtual spaces. How would your interactions in a virtual space, like Second Life, change if you could interact on multiple touch points while collaborating and communicating with someone with the same ability?

Networked surface computing devices could revolutionize the way we interact not only with technology (from Microsoft's perspective), but how we interact with each other and data, and it could change the very concept of "virtual worlds". I'm already hooked.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, watch the clip. Then tell me what you think.
