" As part of their Surface Experiments program (which invites creatives to do more through experimentation and collaboration to realize new ideas with the Microsoft Surface), Microsoft partnered with The Madbury Club to help them realize a dream project—the Mobile Projection Unit (MPU). The MPU's base is an '80s-era Suzuki Carry mini-truck (imported from Japan) and The Madbury Club built an extension on the back. The extension—a mobile studio—includes a dual workspace, boasts a projector on top, and is powered by marine batteries and solar panels. We spoke with Madbury Club founder Phillip T. Annand about the MPU's inception, using the Surface, and just how it stands up against the old pen and paper. "

" Founded in 2010, Brooklyn's Madbury Club is a self-proclaimed "functionally dysfunctional studio experiment" made up of designers, artists, photographers, videographers, carpenters and makers of all kinds. Essentially, dealing in innovation and creation and a bunch of adventure, they were the perfect gang for Microsoft to join forces with to showcase the full potential of the new Surface Pro 4 and the Surface book."
