Back at the Cable Show, I got a demo of what has to be the coolest product (err, prototype) I've seen in a long while: "Surfaces," a wall-sized interactive TV created by pay-TV technology provider NDS. Consisting of six huge LCD screens, running entirely in a HTML5 on a Chrome browser with 4K resolution video and controlled via an iPad, Surfaces is unlike any TV experience you've ever seen.
In addition to recording the demo, I interviewed NDS' CTO Nick Thexton about the Surfaces prototype, when consumers might actually be able to buy one, and what NDS' goals were in creating it. It's a pretty remarkable glimpse into what TVs in the future could ultimately look like. Enjoy.
