    A group of engineers has created a scaled-down, open source, version of Surface. They open sourced both the hardware and the software, and this brings the technology prices down to where the average person can afford it. It's now possible to build your own multi-touch display for between $500 and $1000.

    Microsoft will make the technology available to you for only $10,000. Open source makes the technology available to you for 1/10 to 1/20 of that price. Sounds like there's some raging greed in there somewhere.
