Las Vegas casino debuts new touch-screen Microsoft table

Las Vegas casino debuts new touch-screen Microsoft table Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas has become the second customer to deploy Microsoft Surface, the company’s coffee-table-like computer that responds to touch. The casino owned by Harrah's Entertainment has installed six of the modern devices at the iBar Ultra-lounge in the casino, but unlike AT&T, which was the first to use Microsoft's Surface in a few of its stores, the gambling giant has developed its own software and customized the experience to fit its clientele. The high-tech addition to the casino will allow bar customers to order drinks, send their photos across the bar to other tables and play various games. At this time it remains unknown if gambling would take place on the Surface. "With this latest deployment of Surface, we're now showcasing the breadth of opportunities Microsoft Surface provides to innovative businesses like Harrah's," said Pete Thompson, general manager for Microsoft Surface, in a statement.
