Microsoft’s Vision of the Future

I came across a very interesting video made last year by Microsoft on how technology was progressing and what the future would look like in 2019.

Unfortunately, I think Microsoft overshot their prediction by about 7 or 8 years. The technology they “predict” already exists. Bonnier’s Mag+ had a very similar looking UI designed by Berg, the digital agency in London that’s become quite popular.

Also, TED revealed last year the concept of sixth sense, developed by Pranav Mistry, that used extremely simple existing technologies and created an immensely innovative application that allowed users to digitally access, share and preview information immediately, without the need for a screen.

I guess Microsoft is just a little behind the times. But it was a very enjoyable video nonetheless.
