Automaker's Digital Factory Planner includes expansive 3D wall

Although not quite as elaborate as the Newseum, an undisclosed "luxury car manufacturer" in Stuttgart (Daimler AG, anyone?) is utilizing a half dozen 1080p Christie HD8K DLP projectors to implement a ginormous 3D Power Wall "for interdisciplinary discussions on the construction and alteration of factory floors and production plants." The screen itself measures six- by two-meters and requires onlookers to rock extra-cheesy goggles for the full effect. We haven't a clue what kind of amazing buildings will eventually spawn from this setup, but we can't think of a better installation to have around for checking out a 3D flick after hours.
