Speaking at the company’s TechDays event in Taiwan, Microsoft Asia-Pacific Research’s COO Samuel Shen said that it has developed a Cortana-enabled connected car prototype that projects a display onto the windshield and accepts voice commands for functions like navigation and making restaurant reservations.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
Shen added, “We have not launched similar products due to the high cost, but we hope to have further discussions with Taiwanese partners to jointly explore future possibilities.”
The company previously unveiled its ‘Windows in the car’ concept last year, which featured an in-dash touchscreen that mirrored a Windows Phone’s functionality.
