By building a 23-inch tablet called the “Megapad” Martin Drashkov has proved not all hackers are bad eggs, sometimes they’re just straight up crazy. Drashkov created the humongous tablet over a period of three month and believes it will be a mainstream computing device within a few years since it represents the “next logical step” to follow on from Apple’s iPad.
The device was constructed using “off-the-shelf components” for a cost of less than $600, which does seem cheap when you get a “Megapad” for your money. Google’s Android Gingerbread OS was chosen to run on the ginormous tablet because of its “openness and flexibility”.
Extolling the virtues of his “Megapad” to The Inquirer, Drashkov said, “Unlike tablets, devices like this will make simultaneous use by two users a practicality and will let users more fully immerse themselves in apps and games.”
