If you read my opus on Eyefinity, you'll know that I think display bezels are a huge, annoying drawback for multi-monitor gaming, especially with larger numbers of monitors. The question about whether multi-monitor gaming schemes like Eyefinity will really take off comes down to whether we'll have access to displays with thinner bezels. LCDs do require some bezel space for their electronics, so it's not a sure thing.
However, the folks at Sharp appear to have a handle on the problem. They've cooked up a 60" LCD with bezel widths of 2.4 mm and 4.1 mm, which they promptly used to create a massive video wall:
Watch the video folks, but bring a drool rag.
I'm not sure what happens next, but this technology needs to move to 24" PC monitors ASAP, please. Sharp's 60" monster is scheduled to go on sale in Japan this August, according to Akihabara News. Put in your order for 18 now!
