The iPhone OS on a 24in Multi-Touch Screen [Video]

Posted June 14, 2009 at 9:56pm by iClarified
A video demonstration of the iPhone OS being used on a Mac Pro with a 24" touch screen.

We don't know if this is fake or real but take a look...

don't know about the multi touch thing... but my HP w2207 does detect when i rotate the monitor to acomodate the screen..

Horse hockey. Pure horse hockey. The zoom he tries to demonstrate with the pictures is lightly out of sync with gestures (occurs before his movement.) nice try but even the best touch screen displace doesn't have accelerometers installed... give it a rest fellas.

True.. The zooming is out of sync :) He's playing a movie and just following it!

It looks pretty real to me. It is a Mac Pro, so Im sure its possible. The IR remote is just simulating the Home button cause obviously the touchscreen does not have one buillt on. I also sure that what we are seeing is a virtual OS, or maybe they even found a way to boot the iPod OS, cause the selection at the beginning. It would have taken ALOT, I MEAN ALOT! of practice to get that touch perfect if in fact it were a "slideshow". If it is in fact a real iPod Boot, please post a tutorial on how to do so!!!

It is a bunch of slides put together actually. You can see him using the Apple IR Remote to control the whole thing.

It is not fake. Take a look at :34 and :36. When the screen is moving, you don't see the fingers moving on the IR. And it could be seriously hard to get a slide show to slide that smoothly moving in contacts. I don't know if it is real for fake, but it is an [b]iPOD[/b] OS. Not an iPhone. I would rather the title be politically correct. Would not have stopped me from viewing it, but none the less make the title correct.

Its Fake, its actually the same 24" Dell monitor I have minus the logo. Its not a touch screen. Just very good video editing.

Multi touch functionality can be attached to any screen, Google it.

That's sweet!

It's actually an ipod touch OS not iphone...
zander - June 14, 2009 at 10:51pm
Wouldn't the monitor have to have an accelerometer for the picture to rotate like that? maybe BS.
angelwolf71885 - June 14, 2009 at 11:30pm
actuialy most mdern monaters DO have an accelaromater to switch automaticly from landscame to portit mode so this is prety fesable... corce it would have to be hacked all to hell to run on instell prossers..

Some Monitors send information back to the computer in what orientation the monitor is facing. I have a Gateway 24in and with the software installed, when rotated you can have a long ways vista os it changes by its self. Could be possible

I have a monitor like this, from HP it has a sensor in it that connects back to the computer via usb, when you rotate the monitor it tells the computer you rotated it.. that part i believe, he booted into the OS... looks real to me.
angelwolf71885 - June 14, 2009 at 11:34pm
pluss that message at the begining says an unknowen error has occoured so it could be a result of the trickery needed t git it to boot..
Braden - June 14, 2009 at 11:40pm
Unless they totally reverse engineered the heck out of the OS to port it to x86 architecture, it's fake. In other words, IT'S FAKE.
angelwolf71885 - June 14, 2009 at 11:44pm
umm u know that ARM cpus ARE x86 right? just diffrent instrutions hell it could even be EMULATED
Braden - June 15, 2009 at 12:39am
Did you see any emulation? He booted right into it. I use the word "booted" losely. You know, since it's fake.
Braden - June 15, 2009 at 12:41am
And ARM is not x86.
