Windows for Robots, Talking Bears, and Coffee Mugs

by CodeGuru Staff

Microsoft announces big plans for their flagship operating system. A new website called Windows on Devices was displayed today for a short while.

Microsoft has since pulled the site down, redirecting you to a blank Windows Azure page. According to WhoIs records, Microsoft purchased the website on March 26 this year. The Verge was able to capture some information from the Windows on Devices website before it disappeared, noting that Microsoft plans to bring a version of Windows to things like a "smart coffee mug," a talking bear, and robots. The site also reportedly stated that Microsoft plans to demonstrate a life-sized piano presumably running on Windows today during its keynote address at the developer-minded Build conference in San Francisco. Microsoft's keynote address today at Build starts at 11:30 a.m. EDT. Read the full report here.
