    Bored tonight and was messing around. I wanted to see how smoothly OS X Mavericks would run on my iPad 3.
    It worked pretty good. I took a not so great video with my iPhone but you can get the jest of it.
    You don't need to use the mouse for anything if you don't want to. But it is extremely hard to touch the icons on the iPad screen because they are so small.

    EDITED

    How did you get OS X on an iPad? You're not using some remote software are you?

    I don't believe he has OSX on his iPad at all, I think he's running a simulation, probably using a jailbroken iPad. OSX is not set up as a touchscreen OS, but several scenes show him manipulating things with touchscreen gestures.

    There are several themes available that make can make your jailbroken iPad look like it's running OSX. He's likely running one of those themes.

    If I use Teamviewer on my iPad and Windows desktop, it would like as if I'm running Windows on my iPad, except there is no mouse control (there is touch screen control of the mouse cursor). I think you do have to be JBed to have mouse control on an iPad.

    Here's another hint. I will say that none of these devices are JB.
    They are an iPad 3, 5th gen touch, and 1st gen mini.

    Here's a photo. I have all three devices connected to each other. I'm controlling the cursor with a mouse.

    So what exactly are you doing? It looks like you are spreading your MAC screen across several iOS devices. What app does this?

    Ding ding ding, winner!
    This is what I'm doing. It's an app called Air Display 2 and it's pretty cool. Super easy to use and works on one iMac and up to 4 iDevices. I can sit on my coach and browse my iMac. Open word and excel docs.
    Or if I lay everything out together make a big giant screen.
