Microsoft Garden Pond, a tranquil game that takes place in serene Japanese water gardens.

 

Microsoft Rebound, a game in which you use your fingertips to control Tesla spheres with an electrical field between them to catapult a metal game ball into your opponent's goal.

 

Microsoft Surface Globe, a program that you can use to explore the earth as a flat 2-D map or as an immersive 3-D experience.

 

Microsoft Surface Collage, a program that you can use to explore and interact with your photos and arrange them as a desktop background.
