Demoing the Surface Pen in Office and Word
Panos is demoing the palm rejection on it and how you can lead on it
"reducing the latency" when inking so you can't tell the difference, the crossing of analog and digital
(you can scribble and the doc notes you want to highlight; basically showing how Office is using a lot of inking stuff now, which is neat. It's smarter)
(not quite a remote, it's literally a remote dial)
"it's built into Windows"
(let's you recreate the inking history, can see the inking as it happened, captures the "emotion")
You can Sp3, Sp4, or Surface Book you can use Surface Dial too
scroll thru docs, turn up/down brightness, etc. too

demoing of using Studio and making a comic/script editing
Pretty impressive creation/art demo on Surface Studio; granted we're watching someone draw, so not that thrilling
(Curious what the price will be for Surface Studio...it's gonna be a lot. My guess: $2500; maybe $2999? We'll see soon)
Showing the motion book in action; very much like a mixture of comics and animated GIFs
(crowd claps at the demo)
"we have a ton of partners that we have worked with to bring Surface Dial to life"
Mental Canvas is one of the partners.
"small vignette of what our partners are doing with Surface Studio and Surface Dial"
"Turn your desk into a studio" (partner video showed how people were using Surface Studio, really impressive)
Surface Studio will cost $2,999 and is available for pre-order today. Limited quantiles this holiday.

"what you saw today is the magic we can create"
"about empowering everyone with a new set of tools"
"each one of us has an innate desire to create, to express"
"this is what the first computers did"
"much of the innovation (in the last 10 years) has been focused on consumption"
