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??

According to the link in the main article,

Apple may not have responded to Microsoft with a surface clone, but another company is stepping up to the plate for them. Home A/V company Savant has announced their new ROSIE coffee table, a 40-inch touchscreen Apple computer in a form reminiscent of Microsoft's Surface.
So... Yea.. Its not officially from apple. Thankfully. :rolleyes:


EDIT: Darn. I should really read the whole thread first
