Did Microsoft just reveal RT’s killer app? Not the typical App Store app. A combination of hardware and software – can’t use firmware, as that term already has implications, – perhaps it will be called “Bladeware”.
If I’m interpreting correctly there are numerous sensors below the touchpad surface that put the whole expanse up for grabs. Is it just a matter of a printed overlay and a custom calibrated app.
It might make custom blades extremely affordable. Say something like this to simplify CAD input for piping, complex masonry/tile work, surveying . . . .
Or this to allow patient monitoring without interfering the current image on screen.
Seems like a lot of possibilities for field work.
