What would you compose if your gestures made music?

Look at everyone staring down at their phones and computers. Soon we’ll all be heads-up. With new technologies in the areas of speech, gestures, handwriting and vision, computers will help us move through our days in much more natural ways. We are creating the future of interfacing right now.


How would you change the face of interfacing?

@MicrosoftJobs If gestures could create music, I'd compose soothing music using soft gestures while on a hike or on the beach. #MSFTrightnow

@MicrosoftJobs I want interfacing to learn over time exactly what I’m thinking so when I sit down it goes to my favorite sites #RightNow #UI

It’s happening right now

At Microsoft, we believe technology should interact and respond so naturally to people that it doesn’t feel like technology. 

 

Machine translation brings benefits such as the ability to reliably translate text from one language to another. With speech integration you can simply use your voice to search for a program and, within seconds, receive results that include movies, music, games and more. 

 

And this is just the beginning. With IllumiShare, people can sketch together using real ink and paper; remote meeting attendees can interact with conference room whiteboards; and children can have remote play dates where they play with real toys. The Digits program employs wearable vision technology to enable freehand gesture input that could potentially be used with personal computing such as mobile phone, laptop or gaming console. 

 

The possibilities are endless and we are exploring them all right now at Microsoft.
