Video: Apple's Awesome App Wall
   


 On a wall filled with 30 synchronized 24-inch Cinema displays powered by 30 Mac Pro towers is a waterfall of the 50,000 most popular App Store apps. As the apps are downloaded from the App Store the hyperwall is feed via information in an XML file. The information is then sorted and scheduled using Cocoa and Objective-C. Then an OpenCl kernel drives the animation and Quartz Composer brings it all together using magic. Okay, that last part about magic is false. But the wall is impressive to behold and it takes 10,800 apps to fill all the screens.
