Stay on targetcenter_img Being able to connect multiple displays to your computer is awesome — especially for gaming. Not so awesome: the chunky bezels that break up your expansive desktop.Monitor makers have gotten pretty good at minimizing bezels in recent years, but they’re still there. At CES, however, Asus is showing off a piece of gaming gear that can make bezels magically disappear. All you have to do pop a connector between two screens.Asus decided to go with a straightforward name for this particular piece of gear. They call their creation the ROG Bezel-Free Kit. Despite being revealed in a Vegas hotel its ability to erase bezels isn’t magic. It’s pure science that allows the monitor-melding kit do what it does.Specifically, it’s the phenomenon of refraction. A pair of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) lenses are included in the kit so that you can stitch together up to three displays — as long as those three displays are either the Asus ROG Swift PG258Q or Strix XG258Q. Asus says that “proper fit and alignment are extremely important” when convincing “optical obfuscation” is your goal.The lenses allow an impressive 90% of the light a monitor outputs to shine through. That does mean that the image will be ever-so-slightly dimmer in the bezel zone, but Asus had to balance usability with durability. Using glass lenses would do the trick, but that would lead to a dramatic increase in things other than just the 90% barrier getting broken.Though it’s currently only compatible with two Asus models, the company says that the Bezel-Free Kit could be easily adapted to fit additional displays. It’s probably safe to assume they mean additional Asus display, so you’ll likely have to budget for more new gear than just the Bezel-Free Kit itself if you want to get in on the action.For more CES coverage visit our sister site PC Mag.last_img
