Submission + - Hitachi do Microsoft Surface without the table

An anonymous reader writes: According to CNET.co.uk, who randomly stumbled into a booth at CES, Toshiba have made a Microsoft Surface-type system without the unwieldy table. "The StarBoard system is really two technologies in one. Firstly, it features Hitachi's short-throw LCD projector. This is important, because the projector sits mere inches from the interactive surface. This means you get a huge — 50-inch, in fact — bright screen, which doesn't get blocked out by your head as you lean over the table. The image it projects is incredibly high-quality too, and there was no noticeable distortion." The video attached to the article, shows the system in action and it looks a lot more practical than Microsoft's offering.
