Microsoft has today announced the launch of a new project called Microsoft Companion Web which is being created to enable the Internet to bridge the gap between all the different devices that people use.
Microsoft has been working with the opinion-sharing service Polar to create a reference application for the new Microsoft Companion Web that will help and guide developers with their application development in the future. Watch the video after the jump to see it in action.
“The Polar Companion Web experience complements what you’re watching on the big screen. You can leave it up alongside a film, TV show, or video and keep up with new opinions and questions, as they appear in real-time. Or use any device with a Web browser to control this display.
When you scroll, vote, or switch topics with your device, the big screen experience immediately responds with to your actions. You can see other people’s opinions or how yours compare to your friends without ever loosing sight of the content you’re watching.”
