Microsoft revealed a lot of features of Windows 10 before its actual release on July 29th. And now, the company revealed one aspect of Windows 10 which doesn’t affect the performance of the system, but certainly draws a lot of users’ attention, the default desktop wallpaper, called Hero Wallpaper.

Default desktop wallpapers are very important aesthetic part of every Windows operating system. For example, remember how legendary Windows XP’s Bliss was? It is still one of the most famous and most recognized digital pictures of all time. So with rich history of wallpapers, and the importance of Windows 10 itself, Microsoft’s creative team doesn’t have an easy task to create a worthy desktop wallpaper.

And it looks like Microsoft’s creative team is getting this job very serious. Microsoft posted a video of whole process of creating a new default desktop wallpaper, called “Hero,” on Windows’ official YouTube channel. The team used a lot of tools, like LED lights, fog, projectors, etc. to create this wallpaper. Another interesting thing about this wallpaper is that it is a real image, and it is not photoshopped.

Actually Microsoft still didn’t confirm that Hero will indeed be Windows 10 default wallpaper, but as we see how much effort has been put into creating this wallpaper, it is very possible that we’ll see this picture on Desktop when we turn on our newly installed Windows 10 for the first time.

Below, you can watch the video in which Microsoft’s creative team talks about the new wallpaper and shows us the techniques and process of creating this amazing wallpaper:
