Digital display manufacturer <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281931==http://www.infocus.com" rel='nofollow'>InFocus</a> today announced the launch of the BigTouch all-in-one 55-inch touch screen PC. The Windows 8 computer ships with Windows 8 Pro, and includes a wireless keyboard and mouse. All Windows 8 touch screen gestures are recognized by the five-touch display, including slide, tap, swipe, pinch and rotate.<br />
<br />
The device is driven by the Intel i5 processor, and includes two gigabit Ethernet ports, 802.11n Wi-Fi, two HDMI ports, and six USB ports of unknown speed. Storage is provided by a 120GB solid state drive.<br />
<br />
An upgrade path to the company's <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281930==http://www.infocus.com/mondopad" rel='nofollow'>"Mondopad"</a> will be available that adds collaboration features such as video conferencing, digital annotation, interactive white boarding capabilities, customizable interface elements and Microsoft Office 2010 Professional.<br />
<br />
The BigTouch will be available for $5,000. Pricing is not available for the update to the Mondopad specification.

Sweet
And it doubles as an upper-body gym. I feel this wouldn't be complete without an over-sized floor keyboard pad that you can you can hop around on to type with, just so you get a balanced workout.

The best part is
you can't see the whole display well, when close enough to touch it, so you'll need to learn the box step.

In fairness
The gorilla arm issue would make using the touchscreen on this for regular productivity impossible, of course. But in fairness, reading the product info (and looking at the $5000 price tag), it's actually not so bad--it's being sold as a digital whiteboard/projector replacement for high-tech conference rooms, so people at the meeting can interact with the display directly. I could actually see it being usable (and useful) in that situation. Sort of what the original Microsoft Surface (not the new tablet) was intended to be.
