Yesterday, we (Amnesia) took delivery of Australia’s first two Microsoft Surface tables. We believe they were the first units to ship outside the US. Not often you get your hands on something no one else has seen, so we thought we’d share the grand opening of the boxes…
These crates are heavy. Around 125kg each. “That’s a Big Ass Box” quipped one of the designers.
Raiders of the Lost Ark eat your heart out…
No time to waste we borrowed a crowbar and a hammer from the courier to get inside.
The tables we packed very securely and nothing was even slightly scuffed from transit.
Something to hang on the wall to inspire everyone… a big finger 🙂
The entire package is very polished.
The entire table is packed in what is essentially a GIANT ziplock bag.
When unpacked, the table has the calibration mat and some other printed materials covering the screen.
Up and running in just a few minutes. We actually had our first app (with our own content) up and running within 20 minutes which is great news.
Meantime, staff can’t stop walking up to the table and playing with the demos that were included – A big ass table yes… but so much fun.
