Microsoft Surface As A Gaming Platform

Microsoft’s Surface is a pretty cool looking platform with many possibilities, but thus far we’ve mostly seen just photo management and some cool visual effects. In this video, you can finally see what gaming is like on a device that can detect the position and movement of every one of two players’ fingers. The game is called Firefly, where the player must corral fireflies into a bucket by pushing them with his fingers, and not accidentally squash their own flies:

Looks like fun. While playing casino games, especially card games, is pretty obvious on Surface, but cool ideas like this are going to make Surface unique and fun. I imagine a lot of games where the challenge goes from pressing the right button at the right time to moving your hands all over the table quickly to get the task done.
