No matter how big your widescreen monitor is, you’re always going to end up seeing something mundane like your Mum’s mittens out of the corner of your eye, but this new ‘peripheral vision’ screen from Alienware could put a stop to that and let you completely immerse yourself in games.

 

Alienware has just demonstrated the screen at CES (consumer electronics show), and Engadget reports that it will be available in the second half of this year. The site claims that the screen will have a resolution of 2,880 x 900, which ‘mimics peripheral vision,’ and it’s based on DLP (digital light processing) technology. However, the site did say that 'three faint vertical dividing lines appeared to indicate four sub-panels making up this screen.'

 

Alienware was unable give us any more concrete details about the screen, other than the fact that the model on display at CES is just a prototype. Nevertheless, it's an interesting idea. Could this replace widescreen gaming? Let us know if you'd be interested in such a screen.

God thats big. The problem being, that from those side shots it doesn't look very thin, which could be a problem for the common 42 person dining table... 2,880 x 900 is an insane resolution.

The resolution isn't actually that crazy. I like the concept, but wouldn't you have to sit rather close to achieve the "peripheral vision" effect? And many games (the vast majority) won't look right unless they have matrox triple head support. Even then, it could be fishy.

 

So, again, I like the concept, but it looks like something that should have come out in like, the early 90's.

You could buy a very nice used car, or this gargantuan screen.

 

I really don't see a need for anything like this. I mean, jesus christ, you could live inside that thing. And the way current technology is going, it seems a touch, fat.

Now that would be a lot of fun. I felt a sudden urge to play alone in the dark.

Looks cool, but there's other multi screens similar to this, but not as smooth in the transitions.

 

I'm sure I could find a use for all that space. Right now my two monitors beat it's width res, mines at 3120 pixels wide. One screen is 900 tall, but the other is 1050. The panorama type view is nice and all, but nothing to sh*t bricks over.

I need one of those! And I'll kill whoever I have to get my hands on this god creation.

I believe you.

 

And if who ever you kill has more than one available (because they guard a ware house or what not) please, grab me one while you are at it! moto_whistle.gif

Not bad, but I personally believe companies should work on utilizing head-tracking rather than surrounding the gamer with the screen. I mean, do we really need screens that big? Not to mention that right now, the only game that would look even remotely normal on it is probably Crysis. TVs with resolution that high can make any game look like crap.*

 

 

* = Don't bother flaming me, it's merely my opinion.

Again, it's not that high a resolution.

 

Where my interests lie is retinal projection. That sh*t is crazy cool for both VR and AR implementations. Couple it with head tracking and you're smiling.

It looks nice. But I wouldn't want one myself. I wouldn't want to sit that close to the thing just to know whats coming round the corners. I'm sure id get eye strain as well.

Here's how you get the same effect - buy a widescreen monitor (16:10, or even a 16:9 HDTV) and play wearing fisheye lens glasses.

I wouldn't want one. I'd end up going so close I'd go blind, which incidentally is something you'd have to do to experience this fully. Plus, someone could murder you and you wouldn't see them because your vision's hindered by a curved, chunky screen.

 

But imagine porn on that? Dear lord.

In terms of immersive gaming, I think this is way cooler:

http://www.moddb.com/news/25266/wii-modding-the-future

That's what I was talking about when I said I think they should focus more on head-tracking, than making the screen bigger and wider. I've got a 24" Samsung CRT with component input, so obviously I don't get the best graphics with my 360. But if I had a choice between head-tracking technology, or the monitor this topic is about, I'd take head-tracking any day of the week.

That thing sucks ass if you ask me. It's big as a bed,it's heavy as a motorbike,and it's just butt-ugly. The way technology is today,I'm really suprised that they can't come up with something like that,but flat.

Head tracking is cool and the Wii is pretty much half way there. They just need to make the games and the headgear. icon14.gif
