When shopping for any smallish item it would be helpful to be able to click a button to view the object at life size. I thought of this while looking at watches online.

To do that, the browser would just need to know the life- size measurement of the image, and the size and resolution of your screen.

Shouldn't be that hard right?

       Most TVs & computer monitors (when connected with HDMI or something equally fancy) transmit at least the resolution; I suspect that physical size of the screen etc is in there too.

       (+) Good idea though if you've honestly never come across it before.
