A YouTube video going viral as we speak, in it, two German lads proceed to connect an iPhone to a touchscreen table, then navigate their way through Apple’s familiar menu system. The video has been making the rounds online since it was posted to YouTube two days ago, but are skeptical. It seems one of the operators hit the “sleep button” on the connected phone just before the large display activates, meaning it could just be a mime job.
The display table operates in conjunction with an application running on the iPhone. However, comments on the video mention that it looks like when the guy launches the “special app” he also presses the sleep/wake button on the iPhone. I must admit the move made to launch the app is not a natural one and you can clearly see another finger touching the top of the iPhone before its screen goes blank and the table begins “loading up.”
Regardless of whether the video is fake or not it is a fantastic idea for a product and one which would be a nice addition to any Apple home. If these guys are genuinely working on a table I think they just shot their credibility with this video if it has been staged.
