Microsoft Research had its TechForum event yesterday where it showcased some of it’s latest projects to the press. Windows Phone 7 happily took the center stage this year in several demonstrations. In the first video after the break you will see Microsoft Chief Research and Technology Officer, Craig Mundie, demonstrated a new UI controlled by an HTC HD7. This may or may not be what we can expect to see in the upcoming Windows 8 but it definitely shows us where Microsoft is heading with regards to UI and NUIs.

This second showreel video will give you a glimpse at some HTC HD7 -> Surface 2 interaction and also and Image Based 3D viewing client running on Windows Phone 7 (essentially a seamless PhotoSynth viewing presentation without the distinctive jump between each image).
