The folks over at Bloomberg managed to get access to Microsoft's secret Surface lab, which is the paving ground for new Surface tablet designs. The video features Panos Panay, VP of Surface division, who mentions that iterative design wasn't in Microsoft's DNA, and that his team has had to work hard to get the Surface pro 3 to where it is in terms of the hardware design.

The video showcases the processes involved in creating the Surface Pro 3, which involves designing a kickstand and stylus and bringing the overall weight down while making the device comfortable to hold and use. We also get to see all the tools that are used in the labs' machine shop.

Overall, Microsoft succeeded as far as the hardware design is concerned, as the Surface Pro 3 weighs in at just 1.76 pounds.
