We collaborated with a diverse team of software developers, engineers, interior designers, architects, contractors and project staff to implement Microsoft’s vision of a not too distant future. Our exploration focused on making thought provoking home, office and retail experiences come to life.

Tactile helped the Envisioning Center team to visualize future experiences for the home and workplace. We created large-scale functional prototypes that incorporated new technologies and interactions, while producing detailed designs of fully realized, interactive demo spaces.

Microsoft
& Tactile

Tactile’s relationship with Microsoft has evolved over time. Our designers help to create production products—from keyboards to Xbox hardware—and also to explore the future of computer technology and user experiences.
