D&D Surface Demo

There's a Surfacescapes Demo Walkthrough on Vimeo showing a proof of concept developed by Carnegie Mellon University showing Dungeons & Dragons being played on one of those Microsoft surface dealies that are destroying newscasts everywhere. The clip shows how the interface works for players and game masters, and the result is fairly nerdgasmic. Thanks Slashdot.

This whole video leaves me feeling, "Meh!"

Converting a tabletop game to use a Surface should -not- mean duplicating everything exactly as it is done when playing with pencil & paper.

The Ruse videos were much better examples of how to use a Surface.
