MS Surface spoof

The MS Surface ad has always irked me. Yeah, it's innovation (in the marketing sense: they're selling it first) but it's not invention. The technology has been around for a couple years (and MS didn't own it, invent it, or until lately, support it). Maybe that's why I find the following video funny?

Another thought: this is an interface for non-geeks. I mean, how many times can you reach for objects, in a manner such as those in the video, before your shoulder gives out?

Face it. Power geeks work/play by moving as little as possible. Sometimes by twitching.
