    Hmmm, doesn’t look 30ft wide…must be the angle.

    We can make a 10M curved touch screen..but edit video….not so much..

    @Andy: Yeah I think it’s the curve that throws it off… it looks like 20-25ft at first glance. That said I’d happily take a 20ft curved touch screen display. ;-)

    @Jason Fitzpatrick – It would definitely be a lot of fun to play with. And it would certainly qualify as the ultimate “standing desk” setup! ^_^

    A mortal kombat that you could fight in! youll be able to see the opponent due to the curved screen. youll just have to go easy on the screen when attacking :)

    I think that 10m is the diagonal measurment not the width. If the aspect ratio was supplied you could very easily calculate the width.
