Scobleizer - Microsoft Geek Blogger: "6:52. He's demonstrating the PlayTable (a prototype table 'someone just wrote me and said this isn't the PlayTable. Oh, oh. Still very cool. And, I'll definitely follow up with that team). He drops his cell phone onto a surface and images fly out of it. Wild. Oh, cool, now that the Table has been demonstrated I can talk about this. It's no demo. It really works. It's unbelieveable technology. How does the Tablet work? It has a projector underneath it, projecting onto holographic glass. Under the glass (you can�t see these) are two cameras that triangulate in on the surface of the glass. How does it know that Bill�s cell phone has been laid on the surface of the glass? A barcode on the bottom of Bill�s cell phone."
