Just imagine the size of the screen cleaning cloth to remove all those fingerprints!  Wink

I also thought this bird was amazing.
Certainly an interesting gaming screen though. Cool

Re: Touchscreen Envy

Looks impressive (as does the seagull), but cannot envisage what useful applications could you run on a huge 'touchscreen'.

Re: Touchscreen Envy

This has reminded me of something I saw about 20 years ago during a meeting at a France Telecom R&D centre near Paris.
We were in a meeting room that looked like a typical modern cellular goldfish bowl office with floor to ceiling glass on three sides. During the meeting one our hosts suggested we might like to see their network control centre for the Paris region. He picked up a remote control, which I assumed meant we were going to see a presentation, but when he pressed a button, the entire back wall of the meeting room turned transparent so that we could look down over a very James Bondish looking network control centre. The office wall was about 25 to 30 feet long. It was made from giant liquid crystal panels, used instead of window blinds.
