Run Win8 Metro Testbed on iPad with Splashtop
Splashtop’s Win8 Testbed is “the only app that allows you to experience the Windows 8 Metro UI on an iPad." It works by downloading the Win8 Metro Testbed app to your iPad, downloading and installing the Splashtop Streamer app to your Windows 8 PC, and connecting the two over the network with a security key.
The software costs $49.99, but for a limited time, Splashtop’s Win8 Metro Testbed is available in the iTunes App Store for just $24.99. Check out the promotional video below to see it in action. Developers or anyone who want to checkout the Metro interface on their iPad can download it from the App Store here.

Can Slashtop just yank another Microsoft's UI like that?

They aren't yanking anything. Just think of the app as RDP that utlizes the touchscreen. You still need a Win 8 Machine running somewhere.

Chakra is correct. Also, unlike OnLive, you are providing your own license for Microsoft’s software (albeit, the customer preview is free right now, but it is still licensed with a EULA and whatnot), so Splashtop is simply providing the connection between the two devices, not any actual Windows software.
