If there’s one thing we all seem to enjoy doing, it’s looking into the future and making weird and wonderful predictions about what the future will be like, and how our world will be changed dramatically by the technology around us.
From here on in we’re treated to both the sublime and the ridiculousness, both in equal measures.
We have car windows doubling up as information screens, we have smartphones that resemble nothing we’ve ever seen before, and we have internet connected devices telling a hotel worker when his next guest will arrive. That actually seems quite cool, until you realize the privacy activists out there would have a field day with such technology.
The whole video shows what Microsoft thinks will be a whole new level of connectivity, with all our personal devices talking to each other, and linking seamlessly, or more importantly,wirelessly, with each other.
The six minute video is certainly worth your time to watch, assuming you can stand the music, but we wouldn’t be expecting anything shown to be appearing in your local Best Buy anytime soon.
Fancy-looking video come out of Microsoft, showing just what the boys and girls in Redmond think our digital future will look like. Surely this has been put together by their Windows team, or perhaps their Windows Phone team, you presume. Well, you’d presume wrong because the team behind this video are the creative visionaries (does sarcasm come across well in text?) in, wait for it, the Office team!
