#SurfaceStudio #Computer – Microsoft targets architects and designers with Surface Studio digital drawing board : Tech company Microsoft has unveiled a hinged computer designed to turn from a desktop into a digital drawing surface. Microsoft Surface Studio is on show at Autodesk University event in Las Vegas this week, following its launch last month.
Its 28-inch, 13.5 million-pixel screen sits on a hinged metal support, which allows it to smoothly tilt from an upright monitor position to an almost horizontal drawing surface. “When the screen transitions from Desktop Mode to Studio Mode, it sits at a 20-degree angle, the same angle as a standard drafting board, making it ideal for sketching, writing and designing,” said the company.
The device, the latest in a line of Surface products targeted at designers, has arrived as some creatives are becoming disillusioned with rival Apple. After a series of announcements in September 2016 – iPhone 7, AirPod headphones, Watch 2 – Dezeen readers felt Apple has “run out of innovation” and lost its way.
