Microsoft has been trying to remake itself in the past few years as a company that tries to release new and innovative products. Some of those efforts comes from Microsoft Garage, which the company set up in 2009 as a way for any employee to work on any project at any time.
Microsoft opened up a building on its Redmond, Washington campus in 2011 specifically for the Garage division. One project that came out of Microsoft Garage was Mouse Without Borders, a free download that lets one PC mouse copy, paste, drag and drop files on up to four separate PCs as if they were one PC.
Today, CNN Money reports that the Microsoft Garage division has an ... interesting and adult motto to describe their work ethic: "Do epic s**t." The article also states that entire product teams have been known to use the Garage building to work on ideas, such as a recent "take over" by the MSN mobile team to test the web site's layouts on a number of different smartphones.
The article also says that the Garage building is the location for company "science fairs" where employees can work on their own projects and present their efforts to a panel of judges. The winners apparently get to set off a "volcano eruption", according to the article. We don't know exactly what that means, but it does sound cool.
