We wrote about Microsoft’s idea of creating Surface Blades for different purposes last month. During the second generation Surface launch event held last month, Microsoft announced the Surface Remix Project which showed how you could click in a specially designed Touch Cover that let you remix your favorite songs and share them with the world. Even though it is limited to music for now, it shows that productivity can go various other ways, not just click in keyboards.
Microsoft realized that this concept has a great potential and they visited Art Center College of design to meet students for a three day workshop where students were asked to imagine different blades concepts. Microsoft refers the Cover you click in to Surface as blades. The Surface Remix Project has a music blade and there could be many other blades for various other purposes. Microsoft released a short video to show how students at
Art Center College of Design thought about their own Surface Blade ideas.
Today, Art Center College of Design released a detailed video showing how their students came up with Surface Blades concept starting from simple pencil sketch to mockups, etc. Watch the video above and realize the future potential of Surface Blades concept.
