This detailed breakdown shows the many parts that go into the Surface RT. The 10.6-inch ClearType HD screen is a custom design. The plastic parts in the center of this photo are large scale models of the tiny hinges that control the kickstand.
The two tiny antennas shown here illustrate the careful engineering that went into the Surface. The two antennas are designed so holding the device doesn't block the signal. In addition, two RF windows improve reception.
In the design studio
Surface designers built more than 300 prototypes from start to finish, starting with a crude model made from a book, cardboard, and Scotch tape.
