So yesterday I was bored...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
and remembered that OLED screens can be made completely transparent, and quite thin as well. So then I got this random idea, thoughts?

Can you some it up in a few words? I don't quite get it.

Something about 3d and something about HUD and sommething about 3 transparent screens on top of each other.

Wat.

You dont happen to be in the kidnapping for ransom business do you? Perhaps working on a way to destroy the world as well?

As for 3d.. I think the limiting factor would be the refresh capability of the transparent screens.

Then you run into another issue if you pull out a transparent screen where do you get the back light/background for it?

I personally cant wait for glasses that replace the screens we all use, just imagine these(video after), but with the capability to do 3d and accept a general video feed + have the ability to completely black out (like the auto sun glasses or contact lenses)

lol at the uploaded chicken scratches... although I think i get the jist of your idea. Basically 3 screens in one, layered on top of each other. 2 of the screens can pull out to either side for 3 screen eyefinity, or they can be put together as one, displaying separate things such as 1 screen dedicated for hud, 1 screen dedicated for the backdrop of the game itself.

This gave me the idea of a better way to do 3d without the glasses maybe? To my knowledge some forms of 3d are just doubling the image on the screens or tripling? So this could be done with each screen just rendering offset from each other to create that layered effect.. maybe beneficial...

Make sure these are Bezel-LESS and = WIN.

The idea came from those completely transparent OLED tv's I saw in a news thread a few months back, so was thinking based off of those...

Yup, that's what I was thinking, wonder if I can find a way to patent the idea and get a company to buy the patent... doubt it though.

Ok, basically what I was thinking was, since OLED screens can be made completely transparent afaik (saw a news post a few months(?) ago that showed a TV you could see through), then that means you could also stack them, to have a multi-layered screen, or an eyefinity setup that was much easier to transport, depending on preference/space constraints.

The back screen would have a backing so it wasn't transparent, and would display whatever game/movie/your desktop background/etc.

the middle screen would pull out to the left, and would be the default screen for using as an extra display, for, say, displaying the leaderboard in an fps, or character stats in an rpg, chat in an mmo, etc (if games were made compatible with it, of course), or just displaying webpages/ a movie while you game (I know a few people that do this, atleast while grinding in MMO's).

From what I know of 3D technology, the back and middle screens could work in conjunction to create a better 3D experience, that, theoretically, based on my limited knowledge of such things, would tax the gpu less than having a screen run at 120hz, and you could also use the fact the screens are stacked to your advantage to create a 3D effect. (remember, I have a very limited knowledge here, so don't get mad if I'm speaking out of my ass).

The front screen could be used just for the HUD/subtitles, which, (again, according to my very limited knowledge) could most likely be done with most newer games, given properly programmed drivers for it.
This way, instead of taking an SS and having the ugly HUD/text in the way, you could take an SS of just what one screen is displaying, or, if the HUD is getting in the way, you could simply turn off/increase the transparency of the front screen (will elaborate later).

Of course, I would also think that this would be good for those that like eyefinity, but have lan parties, or dont REALLY have the extra space needed for 3 screens, plus, since OLED can be bezel-less (again, afaik) it would make for a nice, unbroken view, seeing as all 3 screens are made to slide out so far, and possibly click into place (and be able to swing back and for ~20 degrees, for better viewing angles).

I also think that a (probably wired) controller that can change transparency levels, viewing mode, on/off, etc on the fly. Say, 3 power buttons, with a slider beside each of them, and a button beside each slider (to select whether or not the screen is pulled out, all 3 pressed down means eyefinity mode).

Though, how many screens can a single plug handle I wonder...
And yes, I would suggest each screen has its own display inputs, I highly doubt any of our current cables have the sort of bandwidth needed for such a high resolution.

So, what does OCN think, a semi cheap (guessing it would be atleast slightly cheaper than buying 3 screens, due to the fact they can surely share certain components with all 3 screens), much more portable, eyefinity setup that could possibly do 3d when not in an eyefinity setup, that makes screenshots easier to take, can add difficulty to the game/make the HUD less in the way (change transparency, or turn off HUD screen altogether), and display anything you want without needing to have a second screen handy.

Of course, for this to take off, it would require a substantial amount of programming/drivers to properly manage all 3 screens, as well as gpu/game developers to like the idea and support it through their programs, etc.

All this was thought up in about an hour of being bored in class >.>

Yeah like 3 of those stacked sorta thing... though would probably have to be a bit thinner than that, and less curved, so you could really see through it
