Chuck; I think the limiting factor on screen size is the glass. Imagine the technological difficulty of making a piece of glass to support an 84" screen. Each time we read that Corning has come up with a new method of making LARGE glass sheets, we see within a few weeks a new mega size touch screen. I'd guess part of the cost (other than exclusivity) is yield loss due to defects/breakage.
Maybe it's just me, but I HATE fingerprints on my screen. In college, I was know to wallop people who touched my monitor. :) So, this whole trend towards touchscreen devices is rather annoying to me....
I like my Android phone (besides the fact that Motorola reneged on their promise to upgrade it to ICS/JB) but controlling things via touch is often awkward and I can't type worth a darn on the thing. Trying to select text with my fingers is painful!
I wish they would come up with a better method of control, that also doesn't leave fingerprints on the screen. I like how the Galaxy Note uses a stylus, so I might be leaning towards that direction.
Thanks Cabe for such an informative post, I am too excited for such a large screen HD multi touch display but according to me it wont have vast market because of its cost secondly it wont be easy to manage as well .It will have limited market of commercial and industrial usage only .
A number of years ago, Microsoft started making and marketing large, flexible touch screens. I saw lone demonstrated at a MS conference. At the time, they didn't have a lot of specific ideas for its application. Soon, though, I started to see it show up in network and cable election coverage. It provided a map that could zoom in and out via screen touch.
Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
