Microsoft provided a glimpse into new technology concepts and latest innovations during its biennial D.C. TechFair held last week held at the company's innovation & policy center, according to a Washington Post article.
Emi Kolawole writes Peter Lee, corporate vice president of Microsoft Research, participated in a Congressional panel to discuss federal funding for university-based research, visions for the next generation of new products, user experiences and technological insights.
Lee said company researchers worked with educational institutions on each project showcased at the D.C. event.
He also talked about the recently launched XBox One console and a leap motion sensor technology that interacts with Windows.
At the fair, Microsoft demonstrated its GeoFlow project meant to help users create interactive maps using Excel 2013.
The company also displayed its haptic feedback technology which allows users to manipulate virtual objects as if they were real objects using 3-D technology.
