Microsoft creates a vision of the ‘Home of the Future’
Microsoft have created software, computers, game consoles, have even entered the mobile phone industry and are now looking at not doing one new thing but one whole thing with many new things inside. Microsoft is looking to the future, and by looking to the future it will tackle what it thinks the ‘home’ will look like in 10 years. We’ve become a lot more dependent on technology, not to the levels of what happen in Terminator involving Skynet but close enough. Instead of robots being developed to do everything for us, the house will be mostly automatic, reading its surroundings and scanning images to build and adapt to the environment.

Targeting the home market could be the next dream of innovation and investment for Microsoft. To read more please click here.
