Surface is a 30-inch diagonal screen that that can read thousands of touch inputs at once, allowing multiple people to interact with items at once. It tracks taps using a set of cameras mounted underneath the rear-projection screen. Cameras can also identify objects festooned with stickers containing patterns of dots.

Surface will debut as a shopping kiosk at six AT&T cellular phone stores in the US, on April 17th.
