    According to gizmodo, apple show a multitouch screen much like the "surface" from Microsoft.


    Gizmodo: Rosie apple multitouch


    According to the article is very buggy and slow.. what's the point apple doing something like this? Just to catch M$ in this type of industry?!

    I don't think its an official Apple project. Seems they are just using Macs and using a custom written UI on top of OSX.

    Anyone have more details??

    Well the title in the link says "...Rosie Apple-Powered..." that suggests it's not an official Apple product.

    The interface is just fugly!!!

    I saw this a little while back. Look at photos and you'll know for sure it isn't an Apple Product. The UI is terrible.

    Also, follow the links and you'll get to the main story where you'll read this.
