HP hawks huge 132in 'tablet'

Monster multi-touch fondle... wall

Remote control for virtualized desktops

HP unveiled a behemoth this week, catering for the BFGs of the world with a 132in multi-touch display.

The HP VantagePoint is made up of six 47in, 1366 x 768 screens linked together and covered in tough Gorilla Glass.

The prodigious panel packs a combined resolution of 4098 x 1536 and supports 32 simultaneous touch-points. Wowzers.

Audio and video is processed by an HP Z800 workstation, while an HP Pavilion Slimline desktop becomes the remote control, tweaking volume and colour levels for each panel.

The VantagePoint runs on Windows 7, with apps coded through JavaScript, C++, C# and Microsoft Presentation Framework.

As you might have guessed, it doesn't come cheap, and those interested can expect to fork out around $125,000 (£81,500) for a working kit. ®
