Giant iPhone 4 brings Mac OS X to the table
Honey, I blew up the blower
Check out this giant iPhone 4, a tabletop LCD system that runs OS X and Windows 7. It's a PS3 too.
Benjamin Bachmeier’s iTableous borrows its look from the popular Apple handset and even opts for the sought-after white design.
It puts a 5.7Mp HD camera and speakers in the same spots as the Apple hardware, as well as giant buttons and a range of ports including HDMI, USB 2.0 and a 30-pin connector for linking up a real iOS device.
Unfortunately, the machine doesn't support multi-touch, instead relying on a wireless keyboard and mouse to tackle navigation. That comes in pretty handy for when the device is tilted for a more traditional viewing experience.
Powered by a 2GHz processor with 4GB Ram and a 500GB HDD, the iTableous is quite a nifty bit of kit and I'm sure Benjamin's giant iPhone is the envy of many an Apple fanboy. Sony ones too: Ben's built a PS3 in too.
For further images and details on how it was made, have a ganders at Bachmeier’s website. ®
Some serious passing off on trademarks here
He should expect a letter from the iLawyers shortly.
Hey, its a giant white galaxy tab 2... Oh wait..
I didn't make one, so that comment is completely redundant. In fact, I would say that this is a massive waste of time and therefore is actually worse than me using my time to not build what has to one of the most worthless pieces of tech ever made.
... a corruption of lawyers?
I believe the proper term is...
"A leech of lawyers"
