The first Microsoft SmartGlass app is released this Friday, which means that, if you happen to have a Windows 8 tablet (not really that likely to be perfectly honest) you will be able to do all the pretty awesome stuff this slick fella in the above video is doing. Flipping between watching movies on your tablet to watching them using your Xbox 360, receiving info on your tablet as you watch, etc.
I'm quite interested in what this could mean for games in the future. Microsoft put together a pretty interesting demo during its E3 press conference showing the possibilities, but I'd like to see something more concrete. And I'd like to see Microsoft live up to its promise that SmartGlass will work across different tablets.
At the moment we literally have no idea when Microsoft will make the SmartGlass app available for iOS or Android driven mobile devices. I understand the business need to keep these things exclusive to Windows 8 driven-tech for the near future, but I want this stuff on my Nexus 7 sooner rather than later!
