Applied Sciences is an applied research and development team dedicated to creating the next generation of computer interaction technologies. The interdisciplinary group focuses on the synergy between optics, vision, electronics, software, manufacturing technology, materials science, acoustics and signal processing using other sensory inputs to create novel human-computer interfaces. These explorations help incubate next-generation technologies and experiences across several of Microsoft’s devices such as Surface, Xbox, Mobile, Hub, and HoloLens. The team works collaboratively with these business groups as well as other research groups within Microsoft, as well as within Microsoft Research, to not only push beyond the boundaries of present technical feasibilities but also to transfer fundamental concepts into shipping solutions that can be experienced by millions.
