Make a video about silence and add pointless background music to make sure there's not a second of silence in it. Check.

Elis Byberi (3 years ago)
So what? Microsoft is like: We must spend too much dollars and time just to prove a simple theory. Like 2 plus 2 equal 4 we have to build 2 expensive objects containing 2 pieces of expensive object. We will group them all together. We will use expensive devices and outdated operations systems and count them one by one. We finally will drink some beer to celebrate this extraordinary event. At the end we have no idea why we did that!
Elis Byberi (3 years ago)
You missed the point! On these labs [everything that have to do with sound, testing phase], this quiet room is a necessary equipment! I don't see any good this video bring to Microsoft's name! This childish behaviour is not acceptable for a billion dollar company. The are a lot of quiet rooms around the world bigger than that room, quieter than this room and who owns them do not give a sh*t about Guines Records. However I do not trust someone who test himself with his devices and his non open source code! Take a look at VW Group! There is no trust today!
Muaaz Shaikh (3 years ago)
+Elis Byberi They did because Hardware like the Surface tablets were tested inside the room to make sure that sound that are generated by things as simple as its display are as quiet as possible.

2:04 Windows 7? Why?
Mohamed Mahmoud (3 years ago)
+I like to Not give a damn If by old you mean Windows 7 or + then you can run Windows 10 perfectly and you might experience speed improvements, but if you mean old as in very old as in a Windows XP device then unfortunately you might be stuck with what you have. 
Zirploide ​ (3 years ago)
+Dominic Maas My old machine is too slow for Windows 10.
Mohamed Mahmoud (3 years ago)
+Lukasz Baldyga (Detective N.U.T.s) isn't this Microsoft ? they should have upgraded themselves
Lukasz Baldyga (3 years ago)
+I like to Not give a damn I mean like there is Windows 10 now... And don't judge me like that straight off the bat, I'm actually against apple..... And... The gratest os they made was XP but it's been outdated..... :/
Zirploide ​ (3 years ago)
+Lukasz Baldyga (Detective N.U.T.s) Because Windows 7 is the best OS ever invented by Microsoft. Closed minded Apple fanboys can't understand that.

I know someone who works there who have his own fridge full of beer and shit in his office 🤣
Amerikanovich (3 years ago)
+Kbalz Only 1 sip. They split 1 beer between the entire team, gotta keep em' thirsty or there's no incentive anymore.

Go in that room and turn off the lights. You will freak out after a few minutes.
Oferk99 (1 year ago)
Richard Servello There are little light at the ceiling from the fire alert, the fire station didn't agree to turn it off.
Dovah Viking (3 years ago)
+Richard Servello The guy from Veritasium has been in a room like that for hours and he said he could stay in there for a lot longer without any problems.
Cabbage Man (3 years ago)
+ats Depends. If you know that you'll be in there for 5 minutes, I'm sure it can be fun. If you have no idea where you are, why you are there or what it is that you are in, and aren't even sure if you are concious or not, for multiple hours.... maybe not so much

NULUSIOS (3 years ago)
+Гоша Бельский I don't think so. You see Cortana can be trained against a flat waveform which is absolute silence. It's digital. You don't have to "take" Cortana somewhere to train it.
