Microsoft drops the Surface RT from 30 inches. Films it.
Microsoft is evidently getting creative when showing off the Surface RT. In this latest video posted to their YouTube channel, we get to see the device dropped 30" onto a hardwood floor. Well, we don't actually see it as what we're watching is the video taken from the Surface as it is sent to the ground.
As a demonstration of how well it's built, the Surface RT continues recording without skipping a beat. Of course we don't know how the display looks but since we didn't hear any gasps, we'll assume it's okay too. Needless to say, the Surface RT looks to be quite durable, as evidenced by Sinofsky's skateboarding trick.
