Microsoft has erected a giant Surface tablet in Trafalgar Square, London, reports The Verge. The interactive tablet display is a marketing stunt to advertise the company's new Surface 2 lineup of devices.

Microsoft built the structure in around 12 hours, and it's 27 feet wide and 17 feet high, making it a roughly 383-inch display. A purple Type Cover 2 has been recreated, with keys that feed back to a Surface Pro 2 nearby. Microsoft is letting nearby school kids play on the keyboard with a spelling game. It’s all connected via USB and Micro HDMI and you can jump on the keys to control the input. The company has even built space around the keys so you can walk around them before you select the correct key to jump on. We tried the keyboard with the Twitter app for Windows 8, and it worked surprisingly well.
