Microsoft Surface SecondLight

As if  Surface, hasn't enough of a "show" Microsoft has shown their "next generation" Surface tables - a.k.a. SecondLight and the result is... impressive!

SecondLight builds upon the original Surface concept but adds a significant unique new feature that makes it look magical. Instead of a simple acrylic display, images are projected on a material than can toggle from transparent to diffuse state hundreds of times per second.

This allows the embedded projectors to project, not only on the table's "surface" but also project on objects above it.
As this happens hundreds of time per second, we perceive two different flicker-free images on the two planes.

It's not that usual to be amazed in this world - but this SecondLight certainly deserves its "wow- factor"!
