Microsoft has a room on its main campus, not far from where its top executives work, that represents its vision of the future of the home and work place. Harald Becker, a senior product planner at Microsoft, gave us a tour of room. It’s not open to the public. It’s normally reserved enterprise clients. He said the room is akin to a concept car. It’s informed by the research and development from Microsoft’s tech teams. It’s representative of the investment in technology Microsoft is making. Just like car companies show concept cars that never materialize, much of what Microsoft envisions will not materialize. However, this is an idea about how connected, synced devices can change how we work and live.
