What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Microsoft Home kitchen uses projection displays to beam information and recipes right onto the surface of the countertop. The dining room tablet has games projected onto that surface, as well as step-by-step instructions for crafts. Even more advanced than Microsoft's prototype is its "Vision" video, which projects into the future (pun intended) how projector touch displays will work in five to 10 years. A girl builds a product on a touch tablet in this scene: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6cNdhOKwi0&t=4m23sBut an overhead projector extends the animation beyond the tablet and onto the table. Then she does the same thing with recipes. (Microsoft actually has a patent for this and could even ship the technology this year in the next version of its Xbox gaming system.) Her dad checks the contents of the fridge without opening the door, also with a projector touch display. The content, and even the interface, is almost irrelevant. That merely requires programmers to write software, which they will do once this technology is more widespread. It's possible with relatively inexpensive projectors and cameras to turn any household surface into a powerful, huge interactive touch display that can be conjured up or dismissed at any time. When it's gone, no tech is visible.

This is some of the coolest technology I have seen in a long time. Microsoft seems to come up with great R&D to create these type of applications. My wife is a 13 year veteran of Microsoft and I have been in the residential construction industry for well over 30. This "Vision" system would save time and space as we could get rid of those old cook books that you only keep around for a recipe or two. Although I would still keep grandma's chocolate chip cookie recipe in our safe:)

he futurist consensus is that someday household surfaces, like kitchen counters and refrigerator doors, will function like giant iPads, with Internet-connected interactive touch displays. No, not built-in displays. Entire surfaces will be usable as interactive computers. It sounds like far-fetched, space-age technology, and expensive, too. And the idea of replacing choice pieces of your home decor with big screens sounds horrible. But in fact, none of that is the case. That's because touch displays don't require a new counter or fridge. It's possible even today to convert any surface into an interactive touch display using projected light and camera sensors. This has long been a central feature of Microsoft Home, which is a showcase house built to demonstrate futuristic ideas from Microsoft Research.
