    I've got a table version of pacman as a coffee table in my living room, but this easily out does it. Course, it didn't cost me 15k to have a pac man table.

    It's definitely not built for the consumer household in mind to start with, but hopefully when the prices go down it will.

    Although, I would have hoped the cards blocking your card from other people's view would have had RFID tags on them like the dice so that the system can cover up your cards or move with the cover so you won't accidentally knock it away.

    And as much as I like touch screen technology, I've found that dragging your finger across a glass screen constantly can have drawbacks. I've found my finger gets very sore, warm, or irritable after dragging it around a warm surface constantly. So maybe touch interfaces should look into that.

    I'm really excited about this technology. I would love to see it eventually come down in price and be marketed to private consumers. Imagine your living room having this as the coffee table, with all your entertainment and home resources being ran through it. Control your TV or the air conditioner. Play a board game with family or friends. It could be really, really cool.

    Catan is a great game. The Xbox Live version is actually very, very good.

    That thing is awesome. $15K is a bit out of my price range given I only have $20 in the bank, but I do so want to program for that.

    15k? While people wont pay over $1000 for a PC? And they think the Ipad is too expensive?

    Yeah wishful thinking M$.

    When a computer equals the price of a car you know the world is going down the crapper.

    this is actually pretty cool. It'd be awesome to see this as a standard house hold item down the road. And having it sync to your house or something. but right now 15k is a little pricey
