Microsoft's Conceptual Video Of The Future Makes Us Long For It Right Now
Here's Microsoft's take: "The video shows our vision for a future where technology extends and highlights our productive capabilities; it helps us manage our time better, focus our attention on the most important things, and foster meaningful connections with the people we care about.
All of the ideas in the video are based on real technology. Some of the capabilities, such as speech recognition, real time collaboration and data visualization already exist today. Others are not yet available in specific products, but represent active research and development happening at Microsoft and other companies."
While the video is awesome, we can't help but wonder why the time and resources used to create this video weren't used to create real products. Consumers don't want fancy videos. Consumers want fancy products. Let's bring the future, now, Microsoft! In the meantime, we'll enjoy this one.
