Here in PicPay we bought a 4k TV so we could use more widgets on Geckoboard (we have a lot of custom widgets), but at the moment I was setting it up I realized that there's no more than 8 columns available. At first I contacted them, but they don’t support larger screens yet. So I made a simple tweak. Since the 4k width is exactly 2 times the fullhd width and Geckoboard doesn't limit the 2 times height, I made a simple app to open two dashboards side-by-side without borders. So now I have a 16 columns dashboard!
We had an unused mac mini, so I made it work with 4k at 26Mhz using SwitchResX (requires Mac OS X 10.8.5). I was going to do the tweak with html, but I decided to use Xcode to don’t waste time. To work on OS 10.8.5 I had to use the Xcode 5.
Maybe someday I’ll replace the mac mini with Raspberry Pi, so I’ll have to do the tweak in HTML or some other GUI tool. If I change it, I’ll update here.
