    65-Inch Android Tablet Could Be Future Evolution of WhiteBoard High-Tech


    It looks like 'Andy' may be even bigger than we originally thought... literally. A Turkish company, called Ardic, is working on a prototype 65 Inch Android Tablet, that could be the future of high-tech whiteboards for educators and corporate presentations. Right now, their prototype has to work through an actual normal sized Android tablet hooked through an HDMI cable; however, they have several of the touch features already implemented on the giant tablet. It can already handle two touch inputs and simple gestures like pinch to zoom, and their plan is to add more touch inputs and be able to support full multitouch eventually.

    Eventually it's not hard to see this tech evolving beyond just the obvious education and presentation venue, to include interactive retail billboards, construction or military planning, and more. You can check out the video above of the tech demonstrated.

    Update: Apparently, our good man Shadez had already posted about this tablet a few days ago. I guess great minds think alike! Here is his OG post: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/and...t-65-inch.html

    Yes, and no. Whiteboards can get much bigger than 65". In a large room, a larger screen is much better and a projector can easily be moved to make it bigger. You only have to worry about the surface of the white board to be as big as you need. Those are easier to scale up without increasing cost much. Still cool though. I'd like to have a 32" one in my house for my daughter. She's five and I think would be a great tool for school work as she gets older.

    I can't imagine it would be good for your eyes to be that close to an illuminated screen.

    It would be interesting to see how Google/Android could expand on this, but the idea is already being used in schools. My wife is a teacher and her school has a SMART board in every classroom: SMART Boards for Education Interactive Whiteboards for the Classroom - SMART Technologies

    I think it would be easier and cheaper just to hook a smaller tablet up to a projector, because a projectors image can be much larger than 65 inches and a 65 inch screen might not be all that big in a classroom type setting.

    Although it is a pretty sweet idea.

    The only problem here is lack of a touch screen

    They could use multiple screens... who knows maybe sometime soon these tablets will be able to handle multi output, then they could do two 85" screens or something, who knows. maybe some sort of "motion sense" projection so you can make it bigger...cool idea though

    The ability to zoom in/out on the tablet will enable you to adjust the size of the subject matter on the screen, helping to mitigate problems with visibility.

    If they give it a front facing camera it would reek of Orwell's 1984
