Sometimes, we do things just because we can. And for the people at Mongoose Studio proved that you can combine twelve iPod touches to synchronize and display a movie. High cool factor? We think so, and it's quite evident in the video below:
Engadget - Most of us would be happy to get video to play on a single video to play on our PMP without having to run it through some sort of transcoder first, but the folks at Mongoose Studio needed something more complex. They've released a video of a project that's been in the works for some time, clustering 12 iPod touches into a sort of bezel-riffic widescreen display. All are controlled by a master, 13th iPod that can cause them to display a clock in the interest of verifying synchronization (which is far from perfect, as you'll see in the embed below), or to trigger the playing of a movie.
But to be pragmatic about it, the amount of money you spend on these iPods could have been better used to purchase a larger and better full HDTV. But if you do have a bunch of friends with iPods touches, maybe, just maybe, you might want to emulate this feat if it's available. Check out the full story over here.
