Microsoft unveils Surface today

According to SeekingAlpha today:

Microsoft Corp. will unveil a coffee table shaped touch-screen computer at a technology conference Wednesday. Called Microsoft Surface (pictured), the computer will forgo the usual convention of keyboards and mouse devices in exchange for Microsoft founder Bill Gates’ vision of more natural human-computer interactions using touch and voice.

Forbes.com has video of the thing working, referred to by the codename “Milan.” I recognize some of the computer interface gestures, particularly the photo manipulation stuff, from research that Jeff Han is conducting (cool video here).
