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 🙂

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 small fiddly bits of tech which you can easily loose!

I enjoyed both videos, what about you?

    • The technology sure looks cool but I don’t think I will live to see it in my life. In addition to that, it is a very peaceful video that we are watching. In reality, the more area that require IT involvement, the more security breaches will present. I can’t imagine that probably the piece of newspaper might need to install antivirus one day. 😉

  1. I really believe in you that the technology sure appears cool but I do not believe I will live to see it in my life. In addition to that, it is a extremely peaceful video that we are watching. In reality, the much more area that require IT involvement, the more security breaches will current.

  2. For me it is too weird and I am afraid of it to tell you the truth. The technological development is too quick for the whole world and I am afraid it will negatively affect people in general and even their mental abilities and health.
