Head of Windows Steven Sinofsky managed to take the Microsoft Surface out for a spin, and not in the way you might have assumed. Showing off just how durable the product is, Sinofsky took the Windows 8 tablet, which has just been made available for pre-order, and turned it into a skateboard. Yes, the head of Windows was literally riding the Surface.
What appears to be an extension attached to the underbody of the Surface tablet reveals four bright green wheels. We're not entirely sure how far Sinofsky managed to skate, or if it would survive a journey with someone of a larger stature, but it's a humorous example of just how well built the Surface Windows 8 tablets are. The company previously published a video showing some choices that were made through its development.
Sinofsky didn't just remain steady on the device though, BGR reports a jump was performed to ensure that viewers weren't at all skeptical about the strength of the device. It's safe to say that such a demonstration would have appeared abnormal to say the least.
As mentioned above, the Surface RT tablet has been made available for pre-order in a number of markets, direct from Microsoft itself. Should you have missed supported countries somehow, these include Australia, Canada, France, Germany, United Kingdom and the United States.
While pricing has revealed to cause quite a stir in the Windows community, one thing's for sure - the Surface RT tablet offers a unique experience for consumers. As well as announcements and this demonstration of strength, we've seen the Surface tablets being advertised throughout Europe and the US.
Will the Surface tablets and Windows 8 succeed? Only time will tell. Good news is should you not enjoy the experience of Windows 8 and happen to be using a Microsoft tablet, attach some wheels and start cruising around the town centre.
