CES 2008: Alienware Curved Monitor Video Interview

G4 The Feed - Tuesday, January 15, 2008 3:45 PM

One of the coolest things at CES 2008 was Alienware's curved monitor prototype that hopes to finally address the issues of peripheral vision in games.

The monitor is equivalent to two 24" LCDs and looks amazing running Crysis.

Check out this interview now and look forward to this tech releasing in about 6 months.

Looks awesome. I look fowards to the day where all first person games are made in peripheral vision format. Its probably one of the most important steps left in making fps's realistic. I doubt controllers will be turned into guns so to speak since we have to be able to control a lot more than just the gun, so everything else that can be made for immersion without much of a hassle on the gamers side (like, contact lenses you have to put in every time you game..) will be a key to the future of gaming. Hopefully it won't cost much more than two 24" screens in the first place.

Also: the game is actually designed to show peripheral vision? is it actually showing more of the game off to the sides, or just stretching it? When I think about it doesn't seem to hard to add this function to existing games. The geometry is all there, you just gotta lengthen how much of it can be seen, do not stretch, that defeats the purpose.
