HP Windows 8 Launch Party in NYC
(Original Post) Prior to leaving for New York. Read first.
Last week I flew to New York city courtesy of HP for the Windows 8 Launch "The Sound of Touch" at Terminal 5. Terminal 5 is a large music venue in Hell's Kitchen located by the Hudson River. I entered Terminal 5 and I knew it was going to be a great event. The venue was surrounded with numerous HP products with colourful Windows 8 interfaces. I had the opportunity to checkout the various units by HP and was very impressed. Any of the HP units located near the dancefloor allowed the control of the lighting and large digital screens on the ceilings which i found was creative and unique.
If that wasn't enough we had a "Cirque Style" performance and the hip hop superstars Far East Movement. I had the opportunity for an up close and exclusive Q and A session with the group.
If you haven't heard of Far East Movement they are know for the song Like a G6. Here's a little recording I took of the concert that night.

Swipe the blue stripe on the HP laptop and it controls the lighting inside the venue.
Notice the oversized laptop in the background. That was a popular attraction at the event.
Now this is the first time I had time to touch and play with the new HP line and Windows 8. I travelled with my own HP Envy Beats Audio laptop and love it but using this touchscreen with the simple coloured block Windows 8 interface makes it so attractive. I think the future of computing will be touchscreen.
Here are additional photos from my trip.

Getting interactive with the oversized laptop display. Fun!!
Overall the HP Windows 8 Experience in NYC is one to remember. Arriving and staying at INK48 hotel and partying with the folks from HP has been amazing. Thanks to HP and H&K Canada
