D&D on the Microsoft Surface

I've been excited about the potential application of "multi-touch" touch-sensitive displays for a while now, and the iPhone is just the thin end of the wedge. (I'm waiting for an e-reader the size of my netbook's LCD, but with a multi-touch-sensitive color display. Then it is on like Donkey Kong.)

So imagine my excitement when I saw this on Topless Robot last night, a proof-of-concept video for the Microsoft Surface, turning a table-sized multi-touch display into a D&D game table.



I like the fact that you can hear the sound of dice clicking as the virtual dice roll across the display.

Here's the full credits, for reference:
