In 5-10 years, how will people get things done at work, at home, and on the go?

Watch the concept video to get a glimpse of the future of productivity, then explore the stories and technology in more detail.

Microsoft has posted an awesome new concept video with some ubercool new interfaces that could be here in five to ten years, estimates Kurt DelBene, President, Microsoft Office Division.

That sounds a bit conservative. “All of the ideas in the video are based on real technology,” he said. “Some of the capabilities, such as speech recognition, real time collaboration, and data visualization, already exist today. Others are not yet available in specific products, but represent active research and development happening at Microsoft and other companies.”

“Other companies” — hmm, some of the concepts look a bit like Nokia’s visionary Morph concept tech.

Learn about the people in the video: Ayla, Qin, and Shannon.

How does technology help them make better use of their time, focus their attention, and strengthen their relationships?
