Ah, Minority Report; whether or not you love the film itself, it’s been incredibly useful as shorthand to instantly encapsulate an eye-catching multitouch environment. Microsoft’s display at CeBIT 2011 earlier this month certainly delivered on that: interactive presentation specialist Stereolize put together a whopping 234-inch touch-sensitive display for the company to use.

According to Stereolize, the “Microsoft Cinema” display is the largest touchscreen in the world. It’s not entirely clear what resolution it’s running at – this is certainly more than the WVGA you’d get on a Windows Phone – nor how many points of multitouch it supports, but for grabbing attention at a busy trade show (and then encouraging people to sit and watch) it’s perfect.
