    Very cool, let's hope for a beta release in the near future. It almost looked ready to go.

    As some of you know, the Plumbago notebook app is also a product of Microsoft Research. So perhaps there is a realistic chance that one or more of the applications that are showcased in this video might eventually appear in the Store...!

    I was going to register to comment, but didn't. Too much hassle and email chasing and other annoying nonsense.

    But I wanted to leave a link to our own homebrew toolbar creator...

    http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/threads/toolbar-creator-v-2-2-beta-available-for-download.63014/

    -And make a comment like, "This looks great! Good on ya! I hope your experiments tickle the people's fancy who have control over that big green 'GO' button. -The niche market tablet fans have been developing stuff like this as a matter of basic necessity for years now! User-definable on-screen touch menus should have been broadly available to everybody long, long ago, even before pen and touch, -really when you think about it, but especially after..!"

    While we're on the subject, Ken tipped me to another related research product, WritLarge, that is shown on a Surface Hub but which I guess also works on a tablet. Here's an article:

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/project/writlarge/

    ...and here's a video:

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/video/writlarge-ink-unleashed-unified-scope-action-zoom-2/

    Definitely watch this video! It's much clearer than the first video because the scale is larger and you can see what's happening on the screen much more clearly...
