A vision of the future – presented by Microsoft

The other day I stumbled across a video on Microsoft Office’s YouTube Channel which showed a vision that Microsoft had of the/a possible technological future.

The video contained all sorts of cool, crazy and weird things, from electronic mugs that determined your mood and glasses (the ones on your eyes not the ones you drink out of!) that could translate audio, to animated newspapers (digital paper) and 3D holograms.

Below is the video:

So what do you think, is this the future, is it too optimistic, or just a little weird?

I am now very much looking forward to the future to see how right Microsoft got it!

As with most things in life, a rather comical spoof has been of one of Microsoft other visions of the future. I thought I would include it here to give you a laugh too πŸ™‚

What’s your take on these two videos? Does the second speak more truth than the first, your newspaper will crash, we will all have mental implants, oh, and there will be smallΒ fiddly bits of tech which you can easily loose!

I enjoyed both videos, what about you?
