Now this is the hack of the weekend or the hoax of the weekend. Some intrepid hackers have run what appears to be iPhone OS 2.x on a “multi-touch” monitor with accelerometer support. I’ve found a few examples of monitors that could potentially pull this off but I haven’t been able to pin down a model number. However, because iPhone OS is basically a
Linux Mach kernel it should be bootable on Intel hardware – at least in an emulator – all of this is feasible.
We’ll do a little digging but as it stands it’s an impressive hack.
UPDATE – It looks like it comes from Dreamfield.se, a Swedish design firm. They say it’s from their “labs” but they’re of an artistic bent.
