There’s always the “cool factor” of higher resolution. Apparently it’s not enough
of a issue to make it a worthwhile market to serve.  

Based on what has been tossed around, it sounds like an Arduino with some 
bits plugged in is the low cost leader. 3D print up and enclosure and you have 
it all in a some large form factor.
