32-inch Multitouch Interface Opens Up New Possibilities for Android


Not counting Google TV, the largest Android devices we typically see are tablets with displays topping out right around 10 inches. This doesn’t mean the OS has to be limited to such a small screen, and SKR Technology is proving just that with a prototype 32-inch Android interface they have developed. The large screen mirrors the actions of a much smaller Android terminal to which it is connected, but through the deployment of custom drivers and a USB connection the 32-inch multitouch display is the only piece of hardware you need to navigate through a full install of Android 2.3, complete with pinch-to-zoom and other gestures.

It’s not your typical Android device, and don’t expect to see it marketed to consumers any time soon. SKR Technology primarily works in digital signage, and we imagine their new Android design will be used to create interactive displays and information hubs for advertising and self-service type activities such as checking in for a flight at an airport. Little is known how the prototype will ultimately be realized, but the company plans to create a range of sizes all the way up to 46-inches.

  4. Add this to a Google platform for your home “Google Home” which offers both Google T.V. and control of your house’s HVAC, lighting, windows, blinds, doors etc. and I’ll have my dream–like when Tony Stark wakes up in the morning and interacts with his bedroom window. Also, I don’t think you need the battery symbol anymore considering this won’t be a mobile unit.
