Microsoft Surface takes a licking and keeps on filming

Microsoft has made much of the fact that its upcoming Windows RT-based Surface tablet is well made. Indeed, Steven Sinofsky, the head of the company's Windows division, tweeted pictures of himself riding the Surface as if it were a skateboard earlier this week.

Today, Microsoft showed off just how tough the Surface tablet is via a new video posted on its YouTube page. The video was taken earlier this week as part of the company's top secret press event for the tablet at its Reliability Lab in Redmond Washington.

The front facing camera was shooting video during the test, which involved dropping the Surface 30 inches onto a hardwood flood. As you can see from the short clip, the Surface keeps filming its own drop with no problems at all. The Next Web reports, via their first hand account, that there was no damage done to the Surface as a result of the test.

As we have reported before, Microsoft went with Vapor Magnesium for the case of the tablet, along with Gorilla Glass 2.0 for the Surface touch screen.
