Microsoft envisions the near future in technology and interaction

Posted to Data Art  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

In a follow-up to last year’s visions of the future, Microsoft imagines interacting with data and information in 2020. It is the land of big displays, linked devices, and projections in the real world. It’s mostly from a productivity standpoint, but there’s crossover to the everyday.

To be honest though, all I really want are power laces, a self-drying coat, a flying car, and rehydrating pizza. I wouldn’t mind a hover board either, but it’s not urgent. I don’t think that’s too much to ask. I can deal with not being able to flick graphs in the air if it means getting the important things sooner.
