    “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?

    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.
