With windows 10 release just around the corner, Microsoft made a huge celebration about its upcoming new default wallpaper.

The video below describes how the team created that photos and trust me no effort was spared. It has special glass made, haze, projection and camera mapping, and even special Lasers. The process actually is quite fascinating.

So this is no surprise that Microsoft dedicated a whole two minutes of document the making of the photos.

Microsoft describes the image as “looking at the logo itself as a portal that’s allowing us to look into space

Now you may ridicule that image, but it will be the image that tens of millions of people are going to see when they first start windows 10. Tens of millions. (I mean, Windows XP’s wallpaper was considered to be the most viewed photo of in the world). Too bad that the first action of users would probably be to swap this annoying wallpaper image.

Here is a more focused look if you needed one:

    *sigh* I would REALLY like to watch the video without the gods-damned smartphone video ad stomping all over it. What ticks me off is there is NO WAY to turn off the sound of the ad!

    No love,
    Me.

      Funny, I get no ads whatsoever. Maybe you should try to add AdBlock to your browser.

        Meh. Can’t be bothered, usually. I understand that’s how lots of websites pay the bills, even though I don’t use them on my blog. I can live with ads, just not ads that compete with video content.

      Hi Edie,
      there should be no ads on the video, is it a youtube ad or one from the site?

        Not on the video: On the DIY sidebar. It was for a Verizon Droid smartphone, and it’s the win-win-win ad. It’s right below the “GET FREE INSPIRATION, NEWS, TUTORIALS AND REVIEWS!” box on the right. It plays, then goes away, and then comes back, and goes away.

        Edited to add: Right now it’s–oh, wait, it’s the video again! It’ll go back to the photo of the camera again, no doub–yep, there’s the rangefinder-kinda camera again.
