We're sort of hoping the third year's the charm for Ostendo and the CRVD display
-- we first spotted the crazy 43-inch curved monitor at CES 2008 with Alienware and NEC branding
, then just NEC branding at Macworld 09
, and now it's CES 2010 and Ostendo is actually selling it directly. Even better, the company's hooked up with ATI for a pretty sweet Eyefinity
demo -- sure, you might have seen the three- or six-screen Eyefinity demos in the past, but having three CRVD screens wrap 180 degrees around you is pretty wild. We played a little Dirt 2 and did a little Google Earth zooming on the rig -- we might never scrape the $6,499 per screen for a setup like this, but we can certainly watch the videos after the break and pretend.
P.S.- Yes, the CRVD still has the same weak 2880 x 900 resolution, but Ostendo tells us they're working on something with more pixels for the future. Just don't make us wait another three years, okay?Update:
Our friends at Engadget Spanish went back with their super-sweet fisheye lens and took some more pics
-- you definitely want to check them out.
