Ok, this video made me SERIOUSLY jealous!



Personally, I don't think this is even remotely practical, but... :D

Hehe very cool, though I don't think I could sit close to it at that angle for long !  8) :o

Nuts. Not sure why it's 16k though. I though 4k was 4 x pixels of a 1080 screen. With 16 screens it would be 64k.

Nit picking aside, whatever you call it, it's nuts. Cool nuts though.

The "*k" measurement is taken from the horizontal dimension of the display area (really, the longest dimension, since it's still 4k in portrait mode).

the total number of pixels for that bank of monitors was  15,360 pixels along the longest side, while the total height measured 8,640 pixels.

I think that your confusion stems from the resolution of the individual monitors. It isn't 1080p (1920x1080), but 4k (3840x2160). You can fit FOUR 1080p windows on each of those displays. Now multiply that out by 16 screens and you get 4 1080p per display times 16 displays = 64 total 1080p windows that could fit. That's a LOT of real estate. :o
