    So recently I stumbled upon these old videos of Microsoft's surface. This however, isn't the tablet
    you probably own. It's a table. My question is, what happened, I haven't heard of this since, and google can't
    find anything because, you know, the new surface.
    Here's some videos if you're interested:

    I know it renamed Microsoft Pixel. I haven't heard about it anymore though.

    And its manufactured by Samsung for around $8000USD.


    BTW - Panos Panay was one of the original designers on the Surface Tabletop as where many on the Surface Tablet Team, he also pulled in people from the Microsoft Garage team who created the Courier Concept.
