I just ordered a dual head video card in order to run two monitors at the same time. With two monitors I can watch a downloaded video file (legal of course) and work on writing another life changing post for LIVEdigitally.com. Being able to drag a window from one screen to another, and minimize the alt+tab pushing I normally do, will allow me to maintain focus for longer, and work faster. You think I had it all figured out.
I did have it all figured out, until PureDepth came along and blew my imagination out of the water with their Multi Layer Display (MDL). What the heck is a multi layer display monitor? It’s literally two monitors in one. The first LCD display is mounted 7mm in front of the 2nd LCD. Each display is independent, there is no software necessary to run this, simply a dual head video card. There’s a tad of 3d feeling to this, but virtual reality isn’t the goal of PureDepth.
Seeing things happen, being aware of what’s changing, and having more information available at any given time are the goals of this monitor. As the computer continues to advance, the monitor must also advance. Keep an eye out in casinos, car navigation units, the military, the office, and of course the gaming industry for these 1-in-2 babies. I’m going to hold out for the 15-in1 display, giving me a real 3D feel to my monitor!
