Microsoft 3D transparent desktop Microsoft’s Windows 8 Consumer Preview certainly proved to be quite the potential game changer, and the software giant is not only pretty adept at churning out operating systems, but hardware as well. This concept computer from Microsoft relies on a transparent OLED display (incidentally to be manufactured by Samsung) in addition to the Kinect system that currently works in tandem with the Xbox 360 console. It basically allows you to manipulate your apps and windows using hand gestures from behind the monitor. Depth sensors will be able to keep track of where your fingers are at the moment, analyzing them and translating it into input commands. It seems that the future will see a fundamental shift in how we interact with our computers, but I think it is safe to say that the traditional mouse and keyboard setup will remain as the de facto standard for a long, long time to come.
