Every so often Microsoft releases a highly conceptualized video of what the software firm envisions the world of technology to be in the coming years. Until recently, many of Microsoft’s envision videos were CGI love notes to technology that rarely saw the light of day. However, in the last few years, Microsoft’s visions are being met with leaps in technology and providing a relatively realistic view of the world of technology coming to businesses and consumers alike.
With that being said, the men and women that make up Microsoft are switching gears this holiday season and offering a new vision of how it sees its technology enriching the lives of people over the next few months.
Unlike its futuristic visions, this new Spirit of the Season appears to be grounded in the very real and very current use of technology of the Surface Studio to help mend the potential divide millions of people experience every day. As Microsoft puts it at the end of the video, “When the world seems divided, coming together can be a beautiful thing.”
Let us know if you prefer Microsoft’s more grounded envisionings or the far-out CGI fantasies of old, in the comments below.
