Default Re: Triple Head for NVIDIA graphics cards?

However, they can not work as a single monitor in the same way as the TH2G can.

So I further developed my graphics engine and added "Virtual Windows". This feature allows me to place any number of screens at any location and orientation. The engine will ensure that the perspective as seen from the users point of view will be such that all screens appear to act like window panes onto the same 3D world.

Optional a head-tracking device will even allow the observer to move their head thus enabling them to really "look around the corner"

I made this demo video to show what I mean:

Wow! That's really cool! Good work!
