Extremely expensive, agreed, but also extremely cool. The first setup seems to be not powerful enough to render the images fast enough to make the game playable, but the second system is actually doing it pretty fluently.
We absolutely love unique demonstrations of graphics and gaming hardware and at a recent AMD professional graphics meeting in Santa Clara we had a chance to get hands on with a couple of innovative display technologies. The first, from a company called Scalable, uses multiple projectors and software used to scale and warp the projector output to create a seamless display on anything from flat walls to curved glass and even complete domes. Our second demo shows a set of three 2880x900 curved monitors from Ostendo that encompass about 270 degrees of your field of view.
