UI…from the Future

Filed under Computers, Gadgets, Software

Microsoft posted a *very* slick 2 minute video of user interface concepts they imagine will be in use 10 years from now…


A longer (5 min) version with more focus on the UI’s is here…


Exciting stuff!

Things that jumped out at me:

  • The “transparent” wall conversation between the kid in the US and and the kid in India
  • The single credit card that contains all of your cards
  • The interactive newspaper
  • The arrow on the ground at the airport that leads you where you need to go
  • Zooming in and out by bringing a device closer/further from you
  • The “transparent” coffee cup that shows the liquid level and temperature
  • Devices that are completely wrapped in a screen so the the entire device is a drawing surface

I also liked the woman taking a snapshot of the wall of info blocks and being able to manipulate the data immediately on the handheld. I could see something like this happening soon w/virtualization.
