Just had to post this

8¼ feet tall & a little over 5½ feet wide!
Note the YARD STICK on the left - it looks like a toothpick LOL

again, these are just image tiles laying on the floor, that's why you can see tile lines - when installed on a wall, the lines will be invisible

Haven't had a chance to read through this thread yet, but I have to say, seeing your whole wall turn into a screen reminds me of Fahrenheit 451.

I'll have to check back about your raceway wiring...need to do something similar.

Believe me when I tell you, when you live in an apt, and your single - there is NO COOLER THING than having a floor to ceiling, corner to corner image. It is simply mind blowing! I'm so glad I did this instead of getting an actual screen. This is SOOOOOOO much better. Add 7.1, a beer fridge, and the most comfortable couch you can find, into the mix, and maaaaan, you'll never leave the house again LOL I have not seen the sun in like 4 months LOL

And when you bring company home on the weekends, or whenever - man, it's like the spanish inquisition, cuz NOOOOO OOOONNNNEEEE expects the span, erm, FLOOR TO CEILING IMAGE in an apartment! Our chief weapon is SIZE. Size and resolution. Our TWO - 2 chief weapons are size, size and resolution, ...and an almost fanatical devotion to the AVS. Our THREE - 3 chief weapons are size, resolution and, ... oh bugger it!

Seriously tho, if you throw the pj on when they're not expecting anything - your, shall we say, 'F-ability quotient' in her eyes will SKY ROCKET! Guaranteed! - Trust me on this LOL and if you got some cool gadgets, and remote lighting and stuff. PFFFT - your in there before the opening credits even finish LOL

Really? I haven't seen it. My full wall screen always reminded me of the kitchen wall scene in total recall - the 1 with arnold, not the 'new' one.

BTW folks, just as a heads up, I won't be able to make it to gfest this year. Maybe next year the timing will be better

Fahrenheit 451 is a classic dystopian novel in the same vein as 1984, Animal Farm, Brave New World. Its about a firefighter would is in charge of burning books. But folks have walls in their place that act as entertainment like interactive movies. I haven't looked whether it was ever made into a movie (irony).

Looks like it was back in 1966. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0060390/

I'm familiar with that ray bradbury story. He's 1 of my favorite authors. I always found it kind of interesting he wrote a BOOK, about a society that burns books. LOL I just find that funny.

Yea, the original movie was made in 66, but I think there was also a more recent 1 made - an updated version, if you will, called "451". I don't know why, but for some reason I keep thinking that Sam L Jackson had something to do with it. This is just off the top of my head, so I could be completely wrong about all this LOL

BTW, hope your build is coming along great! ...and don't forget when you want a full wall mural for it - I'm your guy!!! LOL
