This is Microsoft's Vision for the Future [Video]

Posted by · 30500 views · Translate

Microsoft has posted a new video that shows off their 'Productivity Future Vision'.

How could emerging technology transform the way get things done 5-10 years in the future? Watch Kat, a young independent marine biologist, and Lola, a corporate executive, work together in a highly interconnected and information rich future.

The video features a lot of huge interactive wall and desk displays, super thin bezel free smartphones, and foldable tablet-like devices.

Take a look below and let us know what you think in the comments...

I especially like the full body video interface that allows you to see the whole person. It seemed as if the person is closer and more connected (than just looking at a face). Everything appeared so seamless and fluid on the video clip. Although I was saying, "Wow, that's amazing," I was thinking that my students still have to learn how to interpret and understand the graphs, data, etc. that was shown before they can make use of it. The classroom environment always brings me back to reality: these are tools to learn, not actual learning.

Fascinating. Makes me want to revisit EPCOT. I wonder how fast educational institutions will embrace advancing technologies, and how much larger the gap might become. I'd like today's students to use a glass door as a screen seamlessly. There might come a time when edu inst. will need to 'do more' than 'teaching students to think critically'.

Unbelievable! It seems there will be a 24/7 work week for the private sector. Working will be meshed with daily living. Wonder how this will translate to public schools? The classroom scene definitely lends itself to individualized learning, with several modalities of learning available to the students.
