NEWS: Hard Rock’s new Vegas cafe features Microsoft Surface

Here we go with more Microsoft Surface in Vegas!

Hard Rock just announced the grand opening of a new Hard Rock Cafe Las Vegas – a 950 seat restaurant and live concert venue. Everything about this new cafe is cool – and the tech is no exception.  Visitors can touch and view Hard Rock’s memorabilia with a huge 18’ wide multi-touch interactive Rock Wall(tm) and in-booth touch screens running Microsoft Windows employing Deep Zoom technology. Here on the Surface blog, I’m most excited to share that Microsoft Surface will be right there with an amazing multi-user way to browse Hard Rock properties and memorabilia around the world. The Hard Rock reports that we can expect many other custom applications on Microsoft Surface too.

The software running on Surface represents a collaboration between the Hard Rock International, Duncan/Channon and Microsoft Surface partner Vertigo. You can see a video created by Duncan/Channon below and more video here and photos here.
