Microsoft released a new video detailing its vision of the future which doesn't exactly include flying saucers and droids, but it does feel futuristic and tech-y. This isn't the first time Microsoft has detailed its idea of what the world will look like in x years. The tech company released a similar psychic vision in 2009 and has various futuristic projects in the works, like its Photosmyth project, which promises to make photo sharing way cool. If Microsoft has anything to do with it, what exactly will our lives look like?
Everything will be a computer. From books, to kitchen tables, to ads, to taxi cabs, every single object will be connected. Take this taxi cab, for example, as the woman drives to her hotel, the car highlights important buildings for her.
Or, imagine a kitchen table computer.
And then there's this book computer.
Not only does almost every object have computer capabilities, but everything is connected, like, on some big cloud-y server. It's like everyone's living in one giant computer bubble.
Touch screen redux. Tapping and swiping isn't exactly going away, but it will be way cooler. First of all, introducing: hover touch.
