Extremely excited about this, since VR has been a thing I have been kind of lukewarm about triple screen gaming but this might get me back to setting my triple screen setup.

It would be even better if they made it to fit various monitor sizes or maybe a trim to fit? Didn't anyone think of this before?

Yeah, i'm also really curious why not anyone has done this before!
I assume it's the creation of the lense which is dificult if made from glass, or even more so if made via plastic.

The Idea itself is great.
But as you can see in the video, the HUD get's affected and really blurry, sadly the HUD is mostly on the corner of the edges :(

Yeah, exciting at first glance but... Is that thick dark blurriness really more immersive than the familiar thin "windowsill" ? I sense a pricey gizmo coming, not a real game changer. Would love to test in person though.

Hmm, it is an interesting development, as much I know the lenses are made from PMMA, a type of transparent thermoplastic that’s much more durable than glass. This material lets 90% of the light from the monitors shine through, making the picture under the lenses slight dimmer than the rest of the screens but less distracting than the opaque seams created when two bezels are pushed up against each other. Reducing the dimming requires glass lenses that are too fragile to be practical for mass production.
