Microsoft published new video showing how the future of technology will look like within 10 year.

Microsoft just published another video demonstrating what it will be possible in the future with the help of technology. In 2015, the software giant is highlighting a new vision of the future video called “Productivity Future Vision” that focus on how technology will enhance people productivity.

The video highlights edge-to-edge screens, surfaces, and super thin tablets being the main tools to get the work done. In addition, Microsoft shows what is possible with bendable displays, holograms, and 3D printing.

What is interesting to see is that in the future, sometime between 5 to 10 years, we’ll see less input via keyboard and more touch and natural handwriting with stylus, as the company shows off a tablet with rounded edges, shape like a book, with a bendable display.

There is also a two-piece wrist device that magnetically attach transforming the pieces into a regular wristband with a display that covers the entire surface of the device. The device bends and it can be used to interface with larger displays, similar to what is possible with Xbox SmartGlass today.

One thing you’ll notice in the video is that the future has displays without bezels, every screen is an edge-to-edge display, with technology that can detect whether you are simply grabbing or wanting to interact with the device.

Also the video displays that anything can be turned into a touch-enabled display, you’ll see wall-mounted screens in the living room, glass wall on offices that function as interactive displays, and a lot more.

One thing that Microsoft is focus in the video is on a future without cables, problems with battery life, but surprisingly enough, the company isn’t focus on phones, only on an earpiece, like those Bluetooth gadgets you can connect to your phone today. According to Microsoft, holograms will be a big deal on productivity, and the video briefly shows the company recently announced HoloLens.
