58-inch multitouch table runs on iPhone [Jailbreak + Video]

The guys behind the iPhone-powered 58-inch multitouch table (think Microsoft Surface) have released a video demonstrating how the system works. Essentially, all you do is hook up your iPhone 4 to the table-top display and away you go. The iPhone 4 display is replicated on the 58-inch screen, and behaves the same way a normal iPhone would (save for the 17x size amplification, of course).

The two guys in the video seem to access the Springboard just fine, they swipe between pages and launch the Photos app. It doesn’t look like a fake, as many readers claimed. The iPhone also seems to be able to output UI elements on that bigger screen just fine.

Check out the video above to get a better impression of how it's working so far. Although this is just a couple of dudes putting a good idea into effect, it would be awesome if we actually see this hit the market sometime down the road.

Video after the break. Would you be willing to slap down your hard-earned cash for something like this if it's ever released? Let us know what you think in the comments!

  • H311 YES. In an INSTANT!
  • If they can do this with something that size, why can't we (STILL!) have a simple app to display and use our iPhones on our computers - like we had for Palm and Windows Mobile.
  • They're using an iPhone 3G!
  • @alli I don't think apple is interested in making the iphone work on your computer, there's probably no good reason to.
    I wouldn't buy the table bases off this. Perhaps if there was a land scape view it would be more useful. Im also wondering about the accuracy of the table touch screen. Does it draw just as well as apple touch screens?
  • Another big ass table.
  • I want one.
  • Nice table. Too bad they can not spend time fixing their squeaky floor.
  • That doesn't look like an iPhone 4 to me...
  • Come on people... this is fake! look @ 0:14 he presses the lock button instead of launching the app. Plus there's no space between the pictures when he flicks from one to the other.
  • How do you get back home though...?
    Seems like you're stuck in that app once it's open.
    I suppose they'll figure out a solution for that though.
  • not showing faces + barefoot!! how can you trust someone who's barefoot? :)
  • Made by a bunch of gaybates! ;P
  • Ive always been interested in media tables. I just wish they took off
  • That thing looks great, funny some1 can make iPhone table but we can't get the white iPhone 4. Anyways that thing would look great in my basement.
  • Angry Birds on a 58 inc display. Sweet
  • It's fake, he presses the sleep button as he opens the app. And it starts zooming back in before he moves his hands if you look carefully.
  • Fake or not, this is a great idea.
  • I would get the Creaky floor fixed
  • So fake but the media table is awesome.
  • I must have this item now. Though I have never been a fan, I would JB my iPhone in heartbeat if that is what it took to get the app. The Table is awesome though and I could see something like this going for well over 1500.00. Not really sure why I would need this, but like I said I know that do.
  • I guess the table is wireless because there is no powercord.
  • Definitely fake. could have timed the swipes better
  • Two words.
    Air Hockey
  • Is someone making popcorn in the background? I want some!
  • now if you could just build in motion sensores alonside the Table/iPhone...... For why you ask, well to orient the hummongoloid screen to where you standing... run and tell that,,,,HomeBoiiiii:)
  • Hi, i believe that i saw you visited my weblog thus i came to go back the choose?.I am attempting to to find things to improve my web site!I suppose its adequate to make use of a few of your ideas!!
