Predictions of the future are rarely accurate, but Microsoft’s vision of what its technology would look it 2019 would be like is pretty off the mark.
The promotional video originally launched in 2009 was unearthed on reddit recently, where translucent, ultra-thin screens and interactive newspapers, slick (albeit dated looking) graphics are part of everyday life.
There are handful of things in the video that have become reality, not necessarily all by Microsoft though, like the foldable phone, augmented reality, gesture controls, but these technologies aren’t as slick as the tech giant envisaged them to be by now.
Oh well. Here’s to 2029 then?
