Workplace of the future

As part of his talk at Wharton Business School on Friday, Stephen Elop, president of Microsoft's business division, is showing a video about the workplace of the future. He'll also step back and talk about how the precursors to many of the technologies shown in the video exist today in Microsoft Research labs.

This slide and the following are screenshots from the video.
