Well in what is their "productivity future vision," the software developer has looked five-10 years in the future to a world of holograms, super thin tablets and 3D printers.Read More
Microsoft Research recently showed off a Kinect project that allows fine-tuned gesture control. This motion sensing device is now able to read whether your hand is open or closed, bringing mid-air multitouch like what you see in 'Minority Report,' all thanks to a new development of the software.
Scientists from Microsoft Research and the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology have developed software, which could predict future events such as disease outbreaks with 70%-90% accuracy.
Microsoft Research have lifted the veil on its latest concept named IllumiRoom, which uses a Kinect and a projector to expand video game graphics beyond the boundaries of the television, augmenting the room around it to amazing effect.
In a project headed by Microsoft Research, a team of researchers are busy putting together and testing a new wrist-mounted prototype that can track finger movement to within one hundredth of a centimetre and interpret simple gestures all in real-time.
Microsoft Research has unveiled the work they have been doing into a 3D hologram system that allows you to interact with the projections floating in midair, with surprising precision.
The system, code-named Project Vermeer, is able to project a 3D image at 15 frames per second, emulating 192 different viewpoints at a time, and presents a counter-point to what technological implementations there are currently.
