A glimpse into the future from Microsoft's perspective
In a video, which was taken at a recent TechForum event, Microsoft's Chief Research and Technology Officer, Craig Mundie, was seen demonstrating the potential of your smartphone as a link between human-machine interaction, as his HTC HD7 was controlling a fancy computer interface with the flick of a wrist. The smartphone in this example did not simply act as a tool, but also exchanged calendar records with the computer in real time. It is the result of Microsoft's idea of linking computers and smartphones through software, which lies in the foundation of WP7.
A second promotional video showcases some of Microsoft's advances in interaction with machines and the potential of a “natural user interface” in every day real life applications. Of course, such projects are simply works of research, but it will surely be neat to see them in our homes one day.

I can't focus on the UI with that guy constantly coughing! What is he holding the recording device with his teeth?

I really love Microsofts technology though I passed on the kin and windows phones, they do have some great ideas and I am really excited to see what they do

microsoft needs to materialize those ideas... they also need to make some hardware to make these ideas come alive...

I love how slighted the announcer was when he was asked at the end of the video if this presentation is reminiscent of their kin line of phones. One would assume that Kin is a swear word not to be used at Microsoft. Kin is the bastard child no one wants to talk about!
