Microsoft Corp. researchers have shrunk down its Surface tabletop computer into a pocket-sized package that, with the aid of a few accessories, one-ups conventional touchscreen devices like Apple Inc.'s iPhone.

Hooked up to a small webcam and digital projector, the Mobile Surface computer demonstrated by Microsoft Research scientists at yesterday's in-house TechFest can create touch interfaces on any nearby flat surface -- or even in thin air.


The prototype Mobile Surface device combines the features of Microsoft's Surface touchscreen computer along with the gesture-based interface of its coming Project Natal game control system for the Xbox 360.
