Microsoft built a bizarre artificial village full of flowers for Mobile World Congress in Barcelona

Microsoft has built a stand at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to show off its products, but it’s not the normal, corporate spaces that tech companies build. Instead, Microsoft has created a village-like space, filled with grass and flowers.

Walk along hall three at Mobile World Congress, and you’ll probably see the Microsoft stand from far away. There’s a weird hot air balloon screen.

Inside the hot air balloon is a DJ playing tracks using a Surface tablet.

Everything in Microsoft’s stand looks like a small village. This box has some Microsoft products on the inside, and fake grass and flowers on the outside.

There are flowers dotted around the stand, which helps you forget that you’re in a tech conference.

Microsoft has also erected street lights around its stand. It makes the sections a little more exciting.

And this wheelbarrow is a nice touch.
