Future Display Interfaces

Microsoft researchers do some nifty things in their labs. Typically Microsoft researchers create cool things, and they never make it to market, but there are some signs that this trend is changing. Some great examples are the Microsoft TouchMouse, and the Xbox360 Kinect.

If Microsoft’s culture of smashing innovation through bureaucratic processes is changing, maybe we will see some of these display interfaces actually hit the market.

Over the last week, Microsoft has been very kind to Kinect modders. Hopefully that is a sign that they will both continue to support the hacker ethos, and launch new and innovative products of their own.

It’s worth pointing out that Microsoft’s support of the modding community is a breath fresh air when compared with the controlling technocrats at Sony.
