Many uses come to mind when thinking of a curved, 2,880x900 resolution (16:5 aspect ratio) monitor - multitasking aside, we'd have quite a fun time opening every Photoshop panel simultaneously, or created the most complex, intricate World of Warcraft
user interface imaginable. Alienware decided to show off its arcing display at CES with Crysis
, the apparent benchmark for all technology of the future.
Our friends at Engadget
who are attending the show noticed three faint vertical lines, indicating the curved illusion is assisted by four sub-panels. The DLP display with LED illumination is due out the second half of this year for a currently-unknown price. Check out their gallery
of the monitor; we also have video
of the display embedded after the break.
