Table Connect, A Fully-Interactive iPhone Table with 58” LCD Screen
The people behind Table Connect for iPhone are most definitely going to get credit for one of the more amazing iPhone accessories we’ve ever seen. Early footage of their 58”, fully-interactive iPhone table opens a whole new set of doors that could play a big part in the future of iOS.
Previously, Microsoft Surface was leading the charge for this type of computing, but it’s safe to say that now they’ve got some competition . . . Users connect iOS devices to Table Connect via the dock, and then launch a dedicated app to expand the screen to an incredibly large table-top. But it’s more than just a display, as Table Top’s GUI offers all the same functionality as your iPhone’s actual screen: swiping, pinch-to-zoom, and opening apps is all there in this one-to-one transfer. Check out the video for proof.
Of course, commenters are quick to point out that this could be fake, and there’s always that possibility. But if not, then it can’t come soon enough. Table Connect is currently in its alpha stages, with no details on pricing, etc. But with a 58” screen, the fact that you need to jailbreak your iOS device to use it might be a lesser worry than the scary price tag it must carry.
