At CEATEC 2008 Panasonic’s dispalyed their super-futuristic LiveWall prototype called “LifeWall” — the World’s larget flat-panel display with 150” and 4096x2160 native resolution. It allows you to operate virtually everything with its powerful life-size images and advanced high definition quality.

LifeWall is good for:

  • making video-calls (the people you speak to are displayed life-sized)
  • viewing, zooming, dragging and dropping pictures
  • accessing the Internet
  • playing video games (the system recognizes your body movements)
  • using it as a huge virtual “wallpaper”
  • enhancing home security (you can install cameras anywhere in the house and link them to LifeWall)

In the videos after the jump, you’ll see a LifeWall – wall-sized screen that detects users anywhere they go in the room it’s installed in through face recognition. AT CES, Panasonic called this concept “You-know-me-TV” and “Stay-with-me-TV”, respectively, which sounds kind of creepy. Users operate the LifeWall by arm motions, much like Tom Cruise in Minority Report’s famous “cyber-display” scene.
