Gizmodo has a Video of Bill Gates Showing off his Expensive Table. Now, this isn’t just any table, it’s a multi-touch display.

We’re getting used to touch screens, but multi-touch is a technology that lets you use multiple fingers. This is what the iPhone uses to enable you to do things like scroll through contacts, shrink and grow pictures by pinching and pulling the corners and much more.

The video doesn’t say what OS the “Surface” table uses, although if it’s from Microsoft, I bet it’s some flavor of Windows (Vista 2.0 anyone). With that said, it’s apparently not being marketed to consumers but restaurants (who might use it as a high-tech self service ordering & checkout center) and other business.

It looks really cool. Oh well back to my old iBook.
