Intel Working on Display Linking Technology
As a part of Intel's "Carry Small, Live Large" initiative, Intel researchers are working on a technology that will enable multiple mobile devices to work together to create a larger display. In other words, the displayed output will span all of the devices.
While there doesn’t seem to be much information to go on at the moment (just that little snippet on Intel’s press site), we love the idea of everyone putting their iPhones or Storms together to check out a video or photos. Like Intel says, “Imagine you and 3 friends placing your mobile devices together while on the road to review the video of the day's events.” Socializing and holiday snaps aside, this could prove a really useful took for buisness folk on the go for the likes of PowerPoint and slide shows.
Intel’s “Carry Small, Live Large” initiative is the company’s efforts to envision the mobile future. Basically, Intel sees mobile computing the same way the rest of us do. Small but powerful. We sent Intel’s PR a wee mail to ask more about the multi-display link post it had on the "Innovation@Intel" pages but we’re still waiting for a response. We’ll update this post as soon as we know more. For now, what do you guys think of the idea?
