Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates gave the first public demonstration of a prototype of his company’s MiPad technology.
MiPad, or multimodal interactive notepad technology, will “integrate the ability of e-mail, calendar, contacts – all the things Windows CE does – with a high-speed wireless connection,” Gates said at a Microsoft conference in Miami.
MiPad is the first demonstration application designed to show off the “Dr. Who” interface technology combining speech recognition and spoken-language processing – an interface that could ultimately end up on cell phones, smart phones and wrist watches.
