Microsoft has been showing off Surface SUR40 at CES, with an updated operating system and fancy new screen, supplied by Samsung, which has a fourth camera pixel knitted between the red, green and blue.

This ingenious invention means the screen can see the direction of your finger, and since cameras are used instead of pressure sensors the user doesn’t even need to touch the screen to control it.

No news yet on it’s price, but don’t expect it to be cheap. The Surface went into production in December 2011 and will be released some time in 2012.
