10-Meter Touchscreen [Video]

Sure, the iPad has enviable touchscreen real estate, but Apple can’t compete with this 33-foot behemoth. The University of Groningen in the Netherlands has converted a 3D theater into a 10-meter by 2.8-meter touchscreen using only free and open-source technology. The Reality Touchscreen, which curves 135 degrees along the stage wall of the theater, accepts 100 multi-touch inputs simultaneously, allowing for collaborative work. The University of Groningen uses the screen to teach students interactivity.

Details of the screen’s tech begin at 1:01.

So, uh, who wants to move to the Netherlands?
