 I was at Google I/O and used the giant Android device 

Is there any way to buy/get one of these for my classroom?  I teach
mobile App/Game development and would LOVE to be able to use this in
my class.

 LOL.  I'd say it's just a TV with a fancy surround and it's mirroring
the device's display via HDMI.

 It probably also has a working touch screen.  I don't know about that
particular one, but the ones being build I know of had a touch screen.
