The Sesame Street / Second Story collaboration produces one of the finest Surface applications to date "The Longest Street in the World" with the Samsung SUR40 for Microsoft Surface, which is at display at the Sesame Workshop.

This amazing journey, brought to you by the letter "S" - Sesame Street, Second Story and SUR40 - enables children, Muppets and adults to explore the rich history of television's most beloved educational show. Second Story Interactive Studios shares that, "The [SUR40] communicates a wealth of information while keeping the experience fun, accessible, and easy to navigate. The interface, taking the form of a colorful and looping pathway, presents a compelling landscape of triggerable stories."

"Content 'pockets' reveal details about the beloved Muppets, while hidden animations reward the curious visitor with unexpected animations," Second Story notes. "In other nodes, visitors can watch show-opening clips from Sesame Workshop's co-productions around the world, and see how Sesame Workshop's approach has been adapted to local cultures and educational needs."
