MIT uses any old junk to make jumbotron display

Researchers at the MIT Media Laboratory have come up with a cunning method of stitching any display devices together to create a jumbotron style big screen. The software based system runs on the web, and can be used to combine displays on any devices that can operate a web browser.

Rick Borovoy, Ph.D. and Brian Knep at MIT's Center for Future Civic Media have created a video to demonstrate how the system can be used, and on the project’s facebook page, reveal that they are working on a solution for using the system to display video as well as still images.
