Just looking at all the crowd and greasy fingers on the Microsoft Surface tables at Australia Tech.Ed 2008!

Digital agency Amnesia is showing off one of its Microsoft Surface tables to attendees of Tech.Ed in Sydney, following delivery of two units late last month. In a blog post, it was revealed that attendees of the event – which officially begins today – will be able to experience the much-hyped Surface technology first-hand.

The Surface table, which is located in the MSDN lounge in the exhibition hall, was already generating strong interest at the launch party last night. (see ITNews photo gallery).
