Some guys from Dreamfield have done some experimentation with running the iPhone OS on a Mac Pro with a 24” multi-touch monitor. The OS seems to work smoothly albeit through emulation. Zooming using pinching is demonstrated in the video and even an accelerometer is used with the monitor as the OS changes screen orientation when the monitor is rotated. Termed as an experimental work from the Labs department at DRMFLD, this is an impressive hack. And since the UI adapts nicely to the large resolution screen, don’t be surprised if Apple uses this same OS in a the rumored Apple Tablet.
Who wouldn’t love to run the iPhone OS with all its glory and 50,000 applications on a giant multi-touch screen?
