Belfiore wraps up his app demo with (codename) Project Spartan. As predicted, it is Microsoft's entirely new Web browser for Windows 10.

Spartan integrates a real-time annotation feature that can work with touch and non-touch devices.

The new browser also has a reading mode, similar to Apple's Safari, that formats articles in a way that's easier to read. It also has a reading list, another favorite of other modern browsers.

Cortana is also baked into Spartan. For example, Cortana autofills a search for the airline Delta with Belfiore's wife's flight information pulled from his other apps.

Myerson returns with a quick overview of Windows 10. Microsoft will release a new build of the OS to its Insiders next week, after the Super Bowl. Windows 10 will then launch on mobile phones.

Switching gears, Hayete Gallot, senior director of security business, unveils its Surface Hub service on an 84-inch 4K display with built-in cameras, speakers, mics, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC.

The Hub is a platform that facilitates workplace meetings and collaboration, as well as display large-screen apps. For example, it can run OneNote, where people can annotate presentations in real-time with a stylus. Here, a Siemens application showcases a 3D model.

Microsoft's Alex Kipman comes onstage to introduce Windows Holographic.

Windows Holographic is an augmented reality (not virtual reality) platform, which is Microsoft's take on Google's now-defunct Glass project.

The Microsoft HoloLens is an untethered holographic computer with see-through high-def lenses, spatial sound, motion sensors and a built-in CPU and GPU.

The HoloLens also has a third processor: a holographic processor unit. The HPU takes in a user's view, gesture and voice to spatially map out his or her environment.

With HoloStudio, users can create holograms of themselves and objects and interact with them. Here, the user is designing a quadcopter.

Because holograms behave like real-world objects, they can be printed in real life. Here, Microsoft 3D-printed the same quadcopter seen before, which was designed entirely in HoloStudio.

CEO Satya Nadella comes onstage. "Windows 10 is the home for the very best Microsoft experiences," Nadella says. "We're going to have services everywhere. When it comes to Windows, we're not building apps, but harmonizing experiences."
