At Microsoft’s Windows 8 and Surface RT launch, members of the press not only got to see plenty of the new Windows 8 PCs and tablets, but we also got a preview of Microsoft’s art exhibit that will be open to the public between October 25th and November 3rd at Hudson River Park’s Pier 57. The installation features a model of New York’s Manhattan island with model buildings strutting out all over the place which make for nice viewing spots for a host of Windows 8 PC, Tablets, and Microsoft Surface RTs. Some buildings you can sit on, some are painted. The Statue of Liberty is floating out near the hallway. There’s even a big moon the slowly moves across the sky. I know there’s a lot of interest in new Windows 8 tablets as well as Microsoft’s Surface, so if you’re in New York City between October 25th and November 3rd, why not check them out in style?
If you’re too far from New York City, you can also see it on the Microtropolis website. From there you can see live video of the exhibit space, plus photos that were taking with some of the digital scenery viewers, and you can send tweets to the projector in Central Park.
The exhibit is open to the public October 27 12:00-6:00pm and November 1-3 10am-6pm.
