Just in case you were wondering on how Windows 8.1 would look like on a large display, the time to stop using your imagination is in the here and now. Enter the MaxPad, where it is touted to be the first Windows multi-touch TV in the world which can be assembled in four different ways. For instance, you will be able to have it assembled as a desktop, or perhaps to see it appear as a flat table. Alternatively, one can have it placed in the form of an inclined table at 45 degrees, and last but not least, to present it to the masses as a kiosk.
Regardless of how it is presented to the end user, the MaxPad will still run on Windows 8.1, which means that users will have the ability to do almost anything and everything on it. Heck, the MaxPad even comes with a universal 8 channel remote control and a 3-axes gyroscopic Air Mouse. Those who are interested (corporations, educational institutions, etc) will be able to pick up the MaxPad in three different sizes – 39”, 50” and 64.5”. To make things slightly more difficult during your purchase decision, expect the MaxPad to arrive in multiple color choices, with prices being set at $5,400, $9,000 and $12,000.
Other hardware specifications include an Optic Multi point touchscreen, a 5MP wide angle camera, a 3.8GHz quad-core processor, an ATI Radeon HD7660 graphics card, a SSD and hard drive combo.
