Craig Mundie, Microsoft's Chief Research and Strategy Officer, says the industry is on the "cusp" of making computing more "humanistic." To demonstrate where this may be going, he shares a video of a prototype robotic receptionist at work at Microsoft headquarters in Redmond.

Mundie showed this video during his keynote address at the Technology Review EmTech08 on the MIT campus last month. I interviewed him immediately after his presentation. We have excerpted segments of "Laura" the robotic receptionist. It is pretty cool.

-- Andy Plesser, Executive Producer
