The moment I saw the presentation unveiing the Surface Pro 3 I had a gnawling feeling that I’ve seen something before from Microsoft that serves as the basis for the improved Pen response time. Having scoured the internet I’ve finally been able to satisfy my curiousity. Back in 2012 Micrsoft Research, more specifically , shared a video where their research into reducing lag on touch screen input was highlighted.
It has long been said that the things that take place in Microsoft Research Labs are amazing. Having a look at the Surface Pro 3’s best-in-class response time does suggest the magic has not run out.
