The iPad screen is just the right size for things for which
the iPad screen is just the right size. However, it does
make the iPad larger than it would be if it were smaller.
The iPOV (we have licenced the use of the letter "i") is
about 9 inches long, an inch wide and (of course)
slim. It fits comfortably inside a jacket
pocket or, for that matter, a small baguette.
For applications that do not require a lot of screenage, the
8"x1" screen performs as expected. If you enjoy movies
about snakes, you need look no further.
For a bigger picture, however, simply hold the iPOV at
either end, and press the button with the helicopter symbol
on it. The display will then spin up to a couple of thousand
RPM, and will switch to POV mode. You can now watch
movies such as "The Great Beach Ball Adventure" or
"Circular Zombies 2" in the way the director intended, on a
circular display 8" in diameter.
Touch-screen implementation is still under development.
