Microsoft demonstrated a live tiles PowerPoint template on Monday.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer showed off a number of slides during his keynote address at the Worldwide Partner conference on Monday in Los Angeles. Ballmer’s PowerPoint driven presentation was powered by what appeared to be Metro style live tiles. The choice of live tiles took many by surprise but reinforced the company’s plans for a unified user interface across devices.
Microsoft is planning Metro style user interfaces across Windows 8, Xbox 360 and Office 15. The software giant uses the tile and text user interface for its existing Windows Phone devices and will sync all of its user interfaces into one unified vision for its next range of products due in 2012. Check-out a video of some of the neat PowerPoint animations and live tiles, below.
