Extremely Cool: Microsoft Office Labs Vision of 2019

Every month we have a technology meeting here at Demi & Cooper so that we can continue to stay on top of the latest advancements online – with social media, CRM systems and beyond. We’re developing quite a reputation for ourselves for being one of the most knowledgeable and forward-thinking advertising, marketing and interactive agencies in the country. You can be sure that when new technologies arise, we will be the first to adopt them into practical marketing tools. Today, two of our designers, Deanne Marrano and Christine Ohme brought up a couple videos that I’m sharing here.

Earlier this year in Feburary, at the Wharton Business Technology Conference, Microsoft’s Business Division president Stephen Elop unveiled the latest production from Microsoft Office Labs called “2019″. We think Microsoft has created a very cool Mac-like version of the future that combines the stark white palette from George Lucas’ 1971 masterpiece THX 1138, healthy doses of tech from Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report and graphics from the opening sequence from Stranger than Fiction. We can’t help but wonder why the future looks so sterile and is populated by stock photo men, women and children, but nevertheless it’s pretty sweet — let’s jump right in:
