Wow impressive indeed! But I also wonder how you get a capacitive multitouch surface that big.

I’m pretty sure it’s a fake, because :
a) if they had the technology to build a mt table that good, why would they use it to display an iPhone screen?
b) wired said so : http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2010/11/table-connect-turns-iphone-into-fake-big-ass-table/

I think it’s too soon to say whether it’s fake or not because 1) It’s completely possible to do it (just check out all the computer/mouse -> iphone/ipad videos out there), 2) Capacitive screens that big are available (keep in mind they only showed 2 touch), and 3) There’s definitely a market for being able to port all the apps on the appstore to multiuser/big screens without actually having to do anything.

Whether it’s fake or not, I wouldn’t doubt you’ll see something real come out of this from someone in the near future. The market for it is there, and it’s completely possible.

hey Seth, thanks for reminding me this older post.
I agree it’s too soon to say whether it’s fake or not. I can estimate how they can make the table as big as thin like that.

But I just can’t imagine why the news say the table supports multiperson. If that’s real, then we don’t need to talk about overlay, projector in this forum any more.
Am I right?

While from the video, it sounds like they are in an East European country, I’m not sure which vendor there has such capability, and before this video I always believe most advanced and mature multi-touch products are still in USA.

I didn’t see where they mention multiperson. In any case, they probably just mean multiperson just because it’s big. They probably don’t mean it actually recognizes individual users (like diamond touch). We normally say mult-user, and that’s probably what they mean. Large displays are inherently multi-user as there’s room for more than one person to use it at a time.

They are talking german. My guess is South Germany (Bavaria), Switzerland or Austria.

FAQ
These are the most frequently ask questions from the past few days. We hope that some of your most pressing questions are answerd here.

1) How did you come up with the idea?
At least two of us (3) are real apple fans, and this idea has stuck in our heads since at least 2 years. We don’t even remember what really sparked the idea.

2) Who are you?
We are 3 developers from Austria.

3) When did you start working on this project?
The idea is about 2 years old and we started working on it in 2010.

4) Is a jailbreak required to make it work?
Yes.

5) Do you plan to make Table.Connect compatible with other devices?
We plan to bring the Table.Connect system to as many devices as possible. Currently it only works with the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4.

6) What do you reply to comments on the internet that it is fake?
We find it quite amusing and some of those fake-claims are really creative. It was clear to us that there would be many doubters but we leave them be. Rather than wasting our time on countless “fake-cries” we prefer bringing Table.Connect to a final stage.

7) How much will the final Table cost?
The most expensive part is the display for sure. (weeks of research not counting). For now we’re quite happy that we have found a development partner who can build such a display at all. We don’t know how the prototype costs would translate into a serial production model.

Ah ah!
That’s definitely a joke (and a funny one I might add)
