Microsoft's Office Labs Future Vision Montage

The guys over at Microsoft Office Labs are earning their paychecks as far as thinking about the future and what we should be looking forward to.

Check out this kick ass video montage (mostly conceptual of course) that addresses the question: “How will emerging technology improve our productivity in the years ahead?” There is quite a bit of augmented reality in here, but also mobile/ubiquitous computing, advanced office applications (better interfaces and visualization) and a host of other neat things.

Notice the total lack of marker patterns and wearable displays? Should we expect contact lens interfaces by 2019? (I’m doubtful on this one).

What do you think?
