Microsoft showing off transparent glass display technology during college tour


Microsoft’s research division is hitting the streets and hanging with the college crowd recently. This nationwide tour is showing off some sick technology in an effort that’s probably, although I don’t know for sure, aimed at making Microsoft look cool and hip to upcoming talent. The demos should do just that too. Think Tom Cruises’s person computer from Minority Report combined with Tony Stark’s toys from Iron Man.

Like iStartedSomething points out, some of this demo could be staged. It’s not that hard to follow a script to “simulate” a tech demo. But we’ve seen some fantastic stuff from Microsoft’s back rooms recently with the Courier, all those mice concepts, and a pressure-sensitive keyboard. I wonder what else is hidden? [via SlashGear]
