Wow! This thing is huge! Shinoda Plasma Corporation has decided to continue to push the plasma format and one up themselves with their latest prototype, that is really rather impressive. Measuring in at 145-inches, this display is actually six separate displays combined to create one big screen.
The same research group responsible for the Android e-ink prototype have returned with a scalable multitouch system, offering the accuracy of the iPhone on a potential scale more akin to Microsoft's Surface. Moto Labs' multitouch display uses capacitive touch, via a grid of tiny wires that recognize points of contact from any number of fingers.
