The giant 27ft-by-17ft tablet that actually projects the screen of a Surface 2 running Windows RT 8.1 was built in a half day. Everything is controlled by USB and HDMI and if you happen to be near Trafalgar Square, you can even interact with super-size Touch Cover 2.

Of course, this didn’t happen out of the blue, Microsoft is using the structure as a marketing campaign to celebrate and promote the new Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 in London. Moreover, the company is also bringing British rapper Dizzee Rascal to rap alongside the no so comfortable to use tablet replica. Update: I just found the video in the Windows UK YouTube channel of how Microsoft built the giant Surface in London. Update: This is the second video published by WindowsUKVideos.
