Microsoft‘s Surface Hub was a piece of technology designed for office work, something that had little usage outside of business practices. The Surface Hub 2 follows in that trend, but is making a much bigger splash thanks to its streamlined shape, streamlined touchscreen and high-end features.

Offering a huge 50.5-inch screen and 4K resolution, the Surface Hub 2 looks more like a widescreen TV than upmarket PC. The system has been designed with functionality in mind, ranging from a 3:2 display that makes it easy to reach the top, to Steelcase-designed cases and mounts, to its rotational screen allowing for near-life-size video chatting. Multiple-unit synchronicity allows for a wide set up of uses for any scale of business, small or large.

Check out the promotional clip above. The Surface Hub 2 is expected to release in 2019. Most recently, it was reported that Microsoft may be designing a radical new Xbox controller.
