  1. Maybe you thought the iPad was a big device when compared to the iPhone. We would forgive you because you probably haven't heard of the Table Connect. It's essentially a 58-inch multitouch table that accepts connections from a jailbroken iPhone 3GS or jailbroken iPhone 4. The project was announced a while back, but now there's a demo video.

    This is absurd, yet the prospect of playing air hockey with it really excites me. xD

    While I'm against Apple products, this is pretty awesome. More touch screen devices are in our future. Soon you'll be able to touch anything and pull up a computer screen. Just be careful you can still get arrested for touching the wrong things!

    I would see if it would blend.

    i Would definitely, forget any other devices on the market and put those two, in my bonus season shopping LIST, at the very top.

    But what resolution is the screen?

    Huh....think I'll put this in the "pretty cool, but what's the point?" category.

    A device like this could be useful for meetings.

    Blendtec just needs to make a slightly bigger blender, purhaps.. or rather, just a larger holding area. Whatever its called.

    Whether or not its real, its silly. Proof of concept, acceptable. Now lets mix this in with the flexible LED screen that Techspot put up and article about and turn it into a blanket!

    Blanket iPhone 4. I'll be the first to create the Heat Blanket (R) App.

    You could probably nail your girlfriend on it. That said, it probably wouldn't be any better than an ordinary table.

    Is there a D&D app for the iPhone? What?!? I'm a geek, I can't help it!

    They should have chosen to show someone else off on that large screen ;) .

    I would not have any use for a screen that size. I mean, a cell phone is a cell phone, not a huge, touch screen plasma, although it is a cool prototype.

    If they can get it to integrate with any device, not just iPhones, it would make it into a great concept. They should make it wireless and able to pull up any device you own.

    Sorry it was a joke, those pixels would be like WAY huge. Short jokes don't translate well to forums I guess.

    Wow, this conversation is all over the place.

    Interesting concept, but like a few others have said...what's the point?
