Republic of Gamers (ROG), the gaming division of Asus, has figured out a problem that has been annoying gamers for ages, the monitor bezels that ruin the prospect of total immersion you should get from a three-monitor setup. Their solution, you might ask? It involves the use of lenses and light refraction by a new product of Asus ROG called the Bezel-free Kit. This new product was just unveiled recently at CES 2018.
The setup involves vertical lenses and mounts that attach to your gaming monitors at 130-degree angles. The lenses help blend the display image and then refract the light to make it bend in a way that feels natural from one monitor edge to another. The whole effect makes it seem as if you’re using one giant curved display. It doesn’t rely on special software, an external or internal power supply, or any other Asus-specific add-on, suggesting you could use this with any monitors seemingly of the same size. An Asus spokesperson has confirmed to The Verge, a popular tech blog site, that the kit will work with a wide variety of ‘thin’ bezel designs, but advised that the monitors have to be the same size for the best possible display output.
Asus ROG doesn’t having pricing or availability info yet, but the company says the product will be coming out in 2018. While it’s solving a specific problem not many customers have, it’s a big deal for those that do use three-monitor setups and want total immersion with their games. It does seem like a worthy investment to take your gaming monitor setup experience to the next level.
