Project Scorpio may have a different design language than that of the Xbox One, called Motion

It’s been reported that Microsoft is working on Project NEON for Windows 10, a new design language that is set to bring a little more beauty to the Windows interface. Now, it looks as though Microsoft will be bringing Project NEON, or a form of it, to Project Scorpio, the upcoming successor to the Xbox One.

Additionally, something called the Motion design language has also appeared on an employee’s LinkedIn profile, which appears to have since been removed, that adds a bit more of a rumor to the mix. It is possible that Motion could be an alternative to Project NEON or part of it.

As reported by Windows Central, Eric Fiscus, a Software Design Engineer at Xbox, had a post on his LinkedIn profile that read:

I’m currently prototyping Xbox Scorpio Motion Design language, which is targeting Holiday 2017. What are we going to do with 6 teraflops of graphical processing power? Find out next year on Christmas morning 😉

It appears that, in addition to Project NEON, the Motion design language will add some extra effects and beauty to the dashboard that we’ve become accustomed to.
