ASUS showcases their ROG Bezel-free kit that hides bezels using refraction

Multi-monitor setups have always had a problem, bezels. In the past multi-monitor users have done whatever they could to limit the problem, utilising displays with the thinnest bezels possible, though the result is always the same, black lines will still hinder the uninterrupted image that you desire. 

ASUS plans to eliminate this problem with their new ROG "Bezel Free Kit", which is designed to sit in-between displays and refract light in a way that removes these black lines. With this kit, all that users will need to do is align their displays correctly. This is a product that nobody knew they wanted, a product that many would even now consider unnecessary. 

This kit is designed specifically for those who enjoy simulator games, shooters or other experiences that benefit from a multi-monitor setup. The only downsides of this solution is the fact that these refractive lenses are created using PMMA, a plastic that only allows 90% of a display's light to shine through, making these refraction lenses slightly dimmer than the remainder of your multi-monitor setup.

The other downside is the need for precise alignment, as well as the fact that this solution will only work at an angle of 130 degrees and that the mounting hardware only works on ASUS' ROG Swift PG258Q and Strix XG258Q displays. This concept can be adapted to suit other displays, though it is unlikely that there will be enough demand for this product for it to enter into full production.

This product will be shown amongst many other prototypes at CES 2018, which includes the company's massive ROG Swift PG65 BFGD 65-inch 120Hz G-Sync HDR display.

Great idea, but just lol... This is a great idea, but at the same time a very dumb idea. These days there are monitors with basically zero bezels, making it almost no bezels anyway.

Also, ultrawide's are also gaining more popularity. I, myself have taken the step into the ultrawide world and I'm loving it Quote

The ultrawide comment makes perfect sense. What DOESN'T make sense about this idea from ASUS is simply this: Why buy 2 or 3 of those monitors when you could instead buy one large ultrawide and another monitor for your normal chat stuff like discord and internet and stuff incase you need to look up something while playing.

I don't know this idea seems...good but not needed anymore either. I guess the saying of "too little too late" might fit here, or might not. Idk lol.Quote

I think it would have been nice a few years ago when the bezels were a problem.

As for now UW is my best buy in a LONG time. I can be without it now. So good for work and great for gaming as well.

I even have a 27* 144hz gsync monitor as secondary for some fps when needed.Quote

Also, the costs are a thing to keep in mind, considering the Swift and Strix are definitely not what I'd consider "at reasonable price". They are effing expensive and who even has 3 of them!? I guess you'd be even cheaper off if you buy an ultrawide and another seperate monitor.

My concerns about a stretched picture are eliminated by the proprietary aspect of the product itself, I guess. So the light will only be refracted so much that the bezels disappear, but what about the actual picture? There will still be a disturbance in the picture.Quote
