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.

It seems like everyone has iPhone type devices, I was hoping by then the things would just read our mind rather than needing to do all that swiping and tapping with our fingers.
In Microsoft’s future everyone uses Apple.
not bubbly and gradient-y enough.
i think they stole the pump portion from sim city
What they forgot to show was the first 5 minutes of each of those interactions were spent with “Hello? Is this microphone on. Hello? ” Delay / Echo “Hello can you hear me?” “We can hear you, is the video not working?”
I can’t ‘like’ this comment.

The pies of the future look like crap
Who creates all these highly problem specific interfaces? And how?
they missed the part where the homeless people get food by clicking on adwords all day
and that other part where your glasses, car, house, and lungs don’t work b/c you got a virus from clicking on that link somebody ‘flicked’ you
this is microsoft after all. welcome to the future (crash)
A display on my windshield by Microsoft gives new meaning to the Blue Screen of Death.
