Microsoft's Surface Input Simulator Allows Development On Win7 PCs
Microsoft's new Surface Input Simulator enables consumers and developers to write Surface applications on any Windows 7 machine, rather than having to have a Surface by your side. This means that devs can finally write these apps at home, on planes, or pretty much anywhere they are. The Simulator looks pretty robust as well: you can simulate fingers, tags and blobs on your monitor, and you can ontrol whether a given input device is down by holding down your left mouse button (as an example).
