In the 37-second clip, Anderson is using the Surface Duo to change the plain green screen background by simply swiping on the screen. He says, "We can now control the Shiproom through an app."

Anderson then uses the device to change the colour of his colleague's T-shirt.

The video, which seems like a teaser (but wasn't officially shared by Microsoft) hints at how Surface Duo would be a tool to support other devices and software.

The upcoming Microsoft device was recently listed on the US FCC and has appeared on the Bluetooth SIG certification page which is a step closer to its release.
