At CES 2010, Microsoft created an audio display that was designed as an interactive experience for convention goers. The Microsoft audio wall essentially commanded interaction with printed displays that read ‘Touch Me.’ The audio wall is just a hint as to the future of audio technology.
Microsoft has long shown innovation and interest in turning walls into displays and interactive technology. Before, this was realized with wall hangings that featured changing photos or images. Adding audio to wall technology is a logical next step. The Microsoft audio wall is an example of potential future home design that will be integrated with technology.
