Microsoft: Visionaries

Published on .

Microsoft and Twofifteen McCann ask kids what the future will look like, underscoring that many of these "visionaries" are envisioning technologies that the company is, in fact, already working on.

Take for example, one little girl, who says that in the future, there would be sort of virtual "mirror" where you can see yourself wearing the clothes you are interesting purchasing without actually wearing them. At CES this year, technologies doing that very thing -- using Microsoft Kinect -- were showcased.

From cars equipped with RFID technologies, to signals that would make it easy for you to order pizza without picking up the phone, Microsoft and these kids are proving that the future isn't that far away after all.
