Panasonic Digital Wall

Panasonic is working on a wall-mounted surface computer with an enormous touchscreen. What the company aptly calls the Digital Wall is reportedly twice the size of a normal 110-inch display, and allows users to drag folders and windows across it. Unlike the similar Microsoft TouchWall currently under development, which is based on its Surface computing technology, the Digital Wall does not yet support multi-touch inputs, although Panasonic is said to be working on it.

The Digital Wall is on display at the Panasonic Center near Tokyo, and the online-enabled computer can function as a TV, a PC, or both at the same time. It can additionally be treated as digital "wallpaper," loaded with images like bookshelves or graffiti. While few official details have been released, it is expected to hit the market in 2010 with a price equally as impressive as its size. [via DigitalWorldTokyo]
