Google Developing Bezelless Connectable Displays You Can Combine Into One Big Screen
Custom large-format displays are nothing new, but if the latest rumor out of Google proves true, a very compelling solution could be coming. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Google X, the company's hardware-focused laboratory, is working on a tiled display system that would allow you to stack and orientate individual displays to create whatever shape you want, like the Christie model seen below.
If you look really closely, though, you'll notice seams running through the display. Users might be able to put up with bezels at home, but when the goal is to make the entire display look as one, any seams are less-than-ideal. That's apparently a problem Google is working on, though. It wants to make sure that regardless of how you stack these tiled displays, they'll be completely seamless.
To help make this possible, Google's supposedly snatched some engineers from Qualcomm and Samsung. There's absolutely no word on when we might see a finished product trickle out of Google; it could be months, or it could be years. One thing's for certain, though, if Google's solution lives up to the promises of a seamless implementation, it's going to be a winner.
