Microsoft’s vision of the future video has ranked as the most shared video of the week.
The software giant revealed its Productivity Future Vision video last week and it became an instant web hit. The video has racked up nearly 2 million views on YouTube in just over a week. Brand Republic, a site that monitors the advertising, marketing, media and communications industries, reports that the video is being shared the most on social networks. Brand Republic claims that the video has racked up 170,000 shares on Facebook, 13,000 tweets and over 300 blog posts to date.
The latest video builds on Microsoft’s previous concepts of touch based computing anywhere and everywhere. The video opens with a business woman visiting Johannesburg and having the audio around her translated in real time thanks to some futuristic glasses. Other scenes in the video feature highly personalized experiences and touch computing on every surface. Microsoft previously created an “Office 2019” video which also features the same opaque smartphones and touch walls.
