Windows SideShow Preview

A great demonstration of Windows SideShow is now available in video format at Channel 9 (click image to watch). Windows SideShow allows hardware manufacturers to put displays in new places in hardware. This offers great benefits in ease of computer use, extreme battery saving capabilities and more.

SideShow can be used to provide a small screen displaying quick access to important calendar or e-mail information, media player control or other customizable features programmed into the screen. The screen may be placed on closed laptop lids so users won’t need to open their laptops to get to quick information. This may be incorporated to other hardware as well, as in a small monitor on a remote control, or on the side of a laptop, or on an area of the keyboard. These possibilities are going to make for some great user experiences on top of great hardware.
