Microsoft cuts touchscreen lag to 1ms

Doodling on your tablet could soon feel as responsive as drawing on paper

Those clever kids at Microsoft are real perfectionists and have been on a mission to do away with touchscreen lag. You know when you doodle on a tablet and the drawn line lags behind your finger as you can see the tablet struggling to keep up? Not any more.

Modern touchscreen tablets can run at a lag of 100ms, Microsoft has brought it down to 1ms. Sure, it might not appear in tablets for a while as this interface is still in the developmental stages but it’s great to see another step towards making paper obsolete. Check out the video below (from around 1m30s if you want to cut straight to it) to see the screen in action.
