The workplace of 2025: a Microsoft productivity vision

Can wearables, touch interfaces and pervasive computing change the world of work? Microsoft is exploring the future of productivity.

While some people can be a little sniffy about concept videos like this, I love them. This design fiction of a future workplace from Microsoft is a lovely, human video – and gives some sense of the potential future use of wearables in a more seamless computing environment.

Microsoft has a whole site exploring the details of the tech and concepts on display here. It’s a fascinating exploration of a possible workstyle to come – and the productivity and lifestyle benefits that could bring.
