Digital Pen Input is About To Have a Moment

In the meticulously organized lab he runs, inside Microsoft’s sprawling Redmond, WA, campus, he’s built a computer with almost zero latency—when you do something, the computer reacts instantly.

I just started using a Surface Pro 3 at work, and the pen input is a revelation for me. When I’m doing training (mostly teaching people how to use tech), I’m projecting my desktop, and I’m constantly using it to draw boxes, highlight things onscreen, and draw diagrams. It’d be hard to go back.

The only nits I have to pick is the non-integrated aspect of it (hopefully solved in Windows 10) and the input lag. I hope this prototype work they’re doing now can eventually solve that problem.
