Using Windows 8 on a Display the Size of Your Kid's Bed

If you’ve ever dreamed of using Windows 8 on a touchscreen that’s larger than a child’s bed, well, its possible.  It will only set you back a cool $80,000.

In July 2012, Microsoft acquired a company called Perceptive Pixel which makes the 82-inch capacitive multi-touch screens and here you we see it in action for one of the first times at at TechEd Australia.

Although we’re now used to seeing this display at Microsoft’s conferences, the amazement of the presenter when it was first shown is amusing.

I don’t expect to have one of these on my wall any time soon, but who knows.  We can all hope.  Enjoy the demo.
