How the Surface Type Cover was made
October 23, 2012 at 23:07 GMT | By John Williams
Microsoft today released a video that goes into detail about the Touch Cover's creation. The Touch Cover connects to the Surface via a magnetic strip. It also serves as a protective cover when folded against the device, and functions as a keyboard when opened. The Touch Cover is 3.25 millimetres (0.128 in) thick and has a pressure-sensitive keyboard.
Microsoft also showed off the Type Cover, which is essentially a 6mm cover with a scissor key keyboard. It has all the same "smart" functionality as the Touch Cover, but with a bit more familiarity when typing. Have a look at the video below.
