AUTHOR: A research group from the Tokyo University of Technology.
DESCRIPTION: A simple pinch on two mobile devices and their screens become one. As we see in the video, different iPhones and iPads act as one large display. The devices need to be connected to the same WiFi so they can determine each other’s position as well as run the same media in order for the technology to work. No words on how works but it is very efficient, the devices get linked almost instantly.
AMUSEMENT RATE: I don’t really know what would be the applications for this new technology but it sure is impressive. Making my phone’s display bigger by putting my iPad next to it would have no point but I could see great gaming applications. The university did a great job at developing this concept, now it’s time for the developers to find clever ideas on how to use it.
