Microsoft's 2019 Future Vision
"How will emerging technology improve our productivity in the years ahead? What opportunities will arise from evolving trends and global change? Microsoft has collaborated with customers, partners, and thought leaders across multiple disciplines to develop scenarios that explore how long-term trends, customer challenges, and emerging technologies might converge to improve our lives, both at work and home.
As you watch this video montage from 2009, look for examples of how current prototypes may evolve in the years ahead. When youre done, tell us what you think and what youd like to see in the technology of tomorrow.
While its hard to predict exactly how technology will unfold, we are constantly researching, looking forward, and gathering insights to imagine how technology investments today can improve peoples way of life in the future."
Again, we could see integrated multi/touch surfaces, seamless authorizing and data transfer, and UMPC concepts. The Future is happening; The Future is Now.
