Things become more interesting in table mode. The custom multitouch Aura interface awaits input from all of your fingers, or can use custom items for further interaction. Lenovo showed off examples of special dice, tops and sliding paddles, allowing players to have board game-like experiences, or maybe play some virtual air hockey.
Companies like Electronic Arts and Ubisoft have each created a title specifically for this table PC. EA has a special version of popular board game Monopoly, while Ubisoft has a new titles Raiding Company and King of Opera. I saw these and others, like casino games, running on the device at a pre-CES showing. They were all shown as selectable titles in Aura's cool wheel-based menu system.
As for pricing, we'll have to wait a bit longer to hear final numbers. Of course, prices will vary depending on hardware configuration. Lenovo did hint that we should see the Horizon priced similar to currently available all-in-one desktop PCs. These systems are expected to ship later this summer.
