    “It’s really just like on the iPhone.”
    There’s no arguing that quote from the video below. The movement is smooth, the screen appears to emit a hi-def image and it’s hilariously awesome. This is the first video of the one and only 58-inch table. All you do is connect the iPhone via a standard dock connector and the massive swiping action begin[/p]

    If it was placed properly in front of a toilet, it would be ingenious.

    That is awesome. But wouldn't the quality be horrible?

    Meh, I'll wait until it gets Droid X compatibility, then I'll think about it.

    this just blows the ipad out of the water, so much for the ipad when you can do this lol i think i watched a documentary where they said that things like this will be part of the future, i might look it up and post it here.

    If you use an iPhone 4 that thing has such a high pixel density that your eye can't see each individual pixel so blowing it up this big should only degrade the quality slightly. It might be more like looking at a 3rd gen iPod screen

    Uh.

    The retina panel is 960x640 native.

    On a 58"' panel those pixels will be the size of your fist.
