  • "Apple Tablet" Video Surfaces
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHRSDWZC_m4]YouTube - IS THIS THE APPLE MACTABLET AKA TABLETMAC ?![/ame]


    An interesting, fairly sophisticated, almost certainly fake video of a tablet-like device is making the rounds this weekend. Highlighted by the French site Nowhereelse.fr, the video shows a thin tablet that looks like nothing so much as a large iPod touch. No source is given for the video.

    The purported Apple tablet is shown running software that resembles the iPhone OS, with familiar screen elements like icons and a Cover Flow-like display. As the video demonstrates the user accessing a website, shopping for furniture, accelerometer movements are used to navigate through the content. The demo is pretty slick, and provides a convincing use case of a device that matches, in most particulars, the Apple tablet that has been described in the various leaks, rumors, and wild guesses over recent months.

    Whoever made this video, it's most likely not an example of actually functional hardware. The display seems to be pretty clearly motion-tracked: notice at the beginning of the video how the screen display doesn't keep up with the movements of the "tablet."

    All of this raises the question of who would go to all the trouble of making such a video. If Apple didn't pay for it, encourage it, or have a hand in it in some way, they sure are getting a lot of pre-release publicity for the device for free.

      100% FAKE ...

      I work on TV station and know when i see blue screen composition / keying ... Amateur work because of few things :

      1) There is constant bluish glow on both hands on side that faceing tablet ( that colour doesn't change acording to tablet screen change !!! )

      2) There is NO REFLECTION on lower part of tablet ( and it should be reflection of left hand )

      3) Right hand have fake shadow on tablet screen ( wich is always constant in size ... even when hand move up/down )
      4) Colour of both hand is changed in HUE toward pink ... this is common error in post production if u don't know how to key or don't want to correct it by adding one more video colour correction filter :-)

      Response of screen is with 0 msec delay when person surf from page to page ( wich is imposible even in local area network with 54 Mbit WiFi speed heheh

      In global nice try to show some proof of concept for some new device ... nothing more nothing less

      im absolutely still getting one

      thats an interesting idea for the kitchen. after seeing this demo real/not? i know for sure this will work great with ableton live. the possibilities keep coming.

      Wow way too technical man! We all know it's fake and regardless of that it's still a great demo. Far better than what i've seen on a tablet. Hopefully, if Apple does decide to create this so called tablet it would have the same great virtual keyboard that the iPhone has!

      Doubt it's real... but a job well done.
