Microsoft Office Division President, Today, Kurt DelBene, shared his vision for the future of productivity in a new video.

"This video envisions how people will use technology to get things done in 5-10 years. It's a cool video that hopefully ignites your imagination for what's possible in the not-too-distant future, and what's even more amazing about it is that most of the underlying technologies in the video are already under development in one shape or another. The journey ahead will be an exciting one."

"The video shows our vision for a future where technology extends and highlights our productive capabilities; it helps us manage our time better, focus our attention on the most important things, and foster meaningful connections with the people we care about," said DelBene.

Adding DelBene said, "All of the ideas in the video are based on real technology. Some of the capabilities, such as speech recognition, real time collaboration and data visualization already exist today. Others are not yet available in specific products, but represent active research and development happening at Microsoft and other companies."
