Once more Microsoft has reminded some of us why it is such a joy to be a blogger. The October Event was a success for the Redmond Giants, and the tech introduced left all viewers with butterflies in their stomachs. As predicted in our previous post, the surface studio was the main item of the event. However don’t think for a second that other items went interesting, because everything at the event was just mind blowing.
Windows 10 Creators Update
Also announced at the event—but not new, was the Holo-Lens. The tech was announced at the previous event in 2015, and was being tested by developers ever since. During this event it was announced that it is now available to consumers. What’s even great is the fact that other parties like Asus, HP, Lenovo, etc. will also be manufacturing the device and selling it to us from as little as $229. If you didn’t know, the Holo-Lens is a Virtual Reality (augmented) device.
Surface Pro and Book
Nothing major was announced or updated in the existing surface family, besides miner hardware updates. The surface book received a i7 core processor, otherwise the new feel will come mostly from the Windows update.
The surface studio; is just on a league all by itself. Everything about the device is simply great. The design is breath taking, and the hardware installed is simply magnificent. What really caught us were the capabilities of the desktop. Introduced with the Surface studio is the Surface Dial, this is an invention that may have caught the world by surprise. Nothing was ever said or hinted about the device, and it is not an upgrade of something but rather an invention. It takes art and creativity to a whole new level.
