In a rather zany demonstration on just how strong and tough the upcoming Surface tablet from Microsoft is, it seems that a certain Steve Sinofsky decided to wear a helmet, while using his modified skateboard where he stood on a Surface tablet for a spin. Of course, I would not expect Steve to perform all the crazy kinds of parlor tricks that skateboarders do, including ollies and hand plants with this Surface-based skateboard, but it does seem that the magnesium case as well as display of the Surface is rigid enough to take on the whole weight of an adult, and then some.

Well, at least we now know that should the entire Surface tablet gig goes south, perhaps Microsoft might want to open up a new streetwear range that merges failed tech alongside traditional street sports. How about an Xbox coffee table while they’re at it?
