Microsoft and Harrah’s unveil high-tech interactive bar table : The Microsoft Surface video that came out last year was the butt of many jokes (“the future of computing will be a big-ass table…”), but lookie here…
Microsoft and Harrah’s Entertainment introduced a high-tech interactive bar table Wednesday that lets patrons order drinks, watch YouTube videos, play touch-screen games and even flirt with each other.
Not a bad price either, though I doubt it’s a money maker for Microsoft:
The six rectangular tables with built-in 30-inch flat screens using Microsoft Surface technology were installed in a lounge at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, with custom applications built for Harrah’s.
A spokeswoman for Microsoft said the units sold for a base price of $10,000.
