Microsoft acquires Perceptive Pixel, the company which made the 82-inch multitouch display that Microsoft demoed with Windows 8 at MWC, to help build large-scale touchscreen devices. Their massive screen supports both stylus and touch input. According to the Perceptive Pixel site, its patented technology is used in broadcast, government, defense, energy, higher education, engineering and product design.

You WANT it, but do you NEED it? Or it is just reaction based on "WOW-impulse"?

Large multi-touch displays are useless. The only good use of a 82 inch display is watching a Michael Bay's movie on it.

82" is definitely overkill, but hey, we might see a cool application for this one day.

It happens alot in the real world. You'd be surprised.

I could use it. Do I NEED it? No. But do the billions of people NEED iPads too? No.

Does anyone need anything?

Water, food and oxygen to metabolize is all that is needed, everything thing else in life is optional.

In all seriousness, it's good Microsoft is getting their own hardware for their software. Another one from the Apple book. OH COME ON! You know I was going to through that line in there.

I downloaded Windows 8 RP, but still debating to install it.
