We have covered several video / app walls on MacStories in the past. From Apple’s app wall at the Moscone Center at last year’s WWDC to the Welikesmall iPod Touch Wall, it appears that developers and hackers alike have been playing around with the idea of turning multi-touch displays into interactive installations a lot. So this new app for the iPad, called The Matrix and available at $4.99 in the App Store, doesn’t come as a surprise at this point. But the result, as you can see from the video below, is quite impressive.
The app can turn any rectangular iPad setup into a video wall. Once installed on multiple iPads (demo video shows 3), one instance of the app will act as a server sending video to the clients, which need to be placed properly next to each other for the effect to work.
The Matrix will cost you $4.99 in the App Store, but I guess that’s a no-brainer if you consider you’ll need at least 3 iPads to get it to work. Check out the video below
