MIX11: Drone hovercraft flies with Microsoft Surface

LAS VEGAS — Most of Microsoft’s MIX conference is about Web development and Windows Phone 7 this year, but several sessions have also focused on Microsoft’s Surface.

In a Tuesday session on natural user interface, a developer shows a hovercraft drone remote controlled by Microsoft Surface software. The Surface software is supposed to run on a large touchscreen tablet the size of a flat-screen television but in this case it’s running on a Windows PC. Theoretically, you should be able to control the Drone by adjusting the controls on the Surface screen with your fingers.

Go to the 32:52 minute mark in this MIX video to see the AR Drone in action.

If you have a few more minutes, check out the Surface and blocks demo that shows how the Surface can interact with little blocks by transferring photos to and from the blocks.

The Surface-block demo is at the 10:25 minute mark in the same MIX video linked above.
