The new commercial showcases the capabilities of Microsoft's Paint 3D app while also driving home a message of inclusion and celebration — just the right theme for the holiday season.

3D content creation and sharing is something that Microsoft has been vehemently emphasizing throughout 2017. Be it with the Paint 3D app or the new Story Remix feature in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, 3D and creativity are all over the place. Now, Microsoft has dished out a new commercial that showcases a few models all created in Paint 3D in the holiday spirit. The models help to demonstrate the capabilities of the Paint 3D app while simultaneously sending a message of diversity and inclusion.

The video description on YouTube reads —

When we are inclusive and celebrate our differences we can make the world a better place. 3D Holiday tells the story of a young girl who goes on an imaginary adventure through space where she and “Gabe the Yeti” encounter various characters who need a little love and support, culminating in a celebration for all.

This year, Microsoft has introduced the updated Surface Pro tablet along with the Surface Book 2 with support for a more sensitive Surface Pen and the Surface Dial. IFA 2017 also saw the launch of affordable Windows Mixed Reality headsets bringing Mixed Reality within the reach of many. Content creation, therefore, has driven most of Windows 10's development this year. We could also see these capabilities evolve in subsequent iterations of the OS.

The characters in the ad are also available to download via and can be used in your own projects. It sure seems to be a great way to kick off the holidays.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
