Steve Ballmer introduced Avatar Kinect and appeared on screen as his Xbox avatar. Avatar Kinect uses Kinect's facial recognition technology to allow a person not only control their avatar's movements but also to project their expressions onto their avatar.

In preparation for Windows 8 - Windows was demonstrated running on an ARM processor. Ballmer also announced that Microsoft will release a series of Windows Phone 7 updates over the next few months, including adding the copy-and-paste feature and improving the phone's performance when loading or switching between applications.
