Well, everything should be recyclable by this day and age if we’re honest.

To mark the launch of the new Microsoft Surface 3 tablet, the engineers at the computer giant have been working hard to put together a (sort of) fully-working version of the machine made of cardboard.

Now, it’s unlikely that it will ever hit the shelves, but it certainly is a cool bit of promotional gear. The lit up section on the left hand side of the display is an mp4 player that they’ve used to highlight the specs of the machine.

The device has been sent to schools in Australia to highlight how useful it can be for students, as a real alternative to a laptop, and we’re certainly looking forward to getting our hands on one to give it a trial run.
