Microsoft shows off 234 touchscreen in Germany

How big can touchscreens be? Well, if you’re like Microsoft and have the money for such technology, the sky’s the limit. Microsoft Germany and Stereolize came up with the Microsoft Cinema – a massive 234″ touchscreen display. It wasn’t stated if the screen’s touch functionalities extended all the way to the top of the screen, but since it was taller than every presenter using the touchscreen at CeBIT 2011 where it made its debut, it is assumed it is. The screen supports gestures like flicking and panning, and makes for an awesome new way to handle presentations. If these giant screens replace projectors in the future, it would mean no more fumbling around with clumsy clickers. Hit the break to watch a video of the screen in action:
