180 Computer Monitor
Remarkably easy to set up and use at home, this projection system won Computer Graphics World Magazine Year 2000 Innovation Award. Unlike a flat, one-dimension computer monitor, its hemispherical projection screen encircles the user, blurring the lines between the real and simulated world. It's an incredible 3D experience the whole family will enjoy. 

Although its patented technology is very sophisticated—color reproduction of over 16 million colors (24 bit) and a native resolution in excess of 2 million pixels—it is quite straightforward to get up and running with any pc monitor; connects to the VGA port. It can also be used in tandem with your current monitor. For gaming enthusiasts, top-end video games are included (can also use latest ve rsions of your own games), as well as an internet browser, educational software and 3D animated demo movies. 

Active-matrix LCD projector. Infinite focus lens: in focus at any distance from the screen. 120 W projector lamp (bulb included). Remote control uses 2 AA batteries (included). Constructed of high-impact fiberglass and high-strength aluminum alloys. Power requirements: AC 100 to 120V/200 to 240V (for overseas use), 50/60Hz; 180W. 5'3' H x 5'5' W x 3'5' D (150 lbs.)

If you had the $20,000 to spend on it, would you buy this 180 degree computer monitor?

19 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 12/19/02 - 6:40:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
what a waste of money
19 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 12/19/02 - 6:40:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
oh god NO!
19 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 12/19/02 - 6:43:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I can think of a lot of other stuff that I would buy with $20,000.
19 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 12/19/02 - 6:43:46 AM EST (GMT-5)
...like a car... or a down payment on a house.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/12/03 - 1:49:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
oh hell yes! In fact I'd buy two!
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/12/03 - 1:50:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
That looks cool!
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/12/03 - 1:58:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh God NO! Thats ridiculous, unnecessary, and weird.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/12/03 - 1:59:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
no way
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/12/03 - 2:00:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
That seems a bit overwhelming.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/12/03 - 2:03:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
No way, I'd rather spend the money on something else.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/12/03 - 2:15:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
uhh no
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/12/03 - 2:40:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
stupid...could spend $20,000 on MAY better stuff than that...
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/12/03 - 3:18:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
No I would buy a car!
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/12/03 - 3:22:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Okay I don't think anyone is understanding the question, LOL ... I said 'if you had the $20,000 to spend on it, would you?' Not 'what would you buy with $20,000'. I don't care what you'd buy if you had $20,000, I care about whether you like the monitor enough to buy it if cost wasn't an object :P
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/12/03 - 3:24:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
In that case. No i would not buy the pointless monitor.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/12/03 - 4:50:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
I definitely would, it looks awesome! It's like being IN the screen :D
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 1/21/03 - 7:13:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think I'll give them time to perfect the technology. I'd take the $20K and invest it until then.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 1/21/03 - 7:30:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
*cough*nerd*cough*
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 1/21/03 - 7:34:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd wait a week and it'll be selling for $500.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 1/21/03 - 7:36:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
no way i'll wait for like 5 years when either a - they are non exisistant or b - they are like 50 bucks.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 1/21/03 - 7:40:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, I would definately do that........My big ol' butt!!!
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 1/21/03 - 7:40:20 PM EST (GMT-5)

19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 2/11/03 - 11:46:49 PM EST (GMT-5)

19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 2/11/03 - 11:51:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
If I didn't have any other financial worries and I had the $20,000 sitting in my pocket and couldn't think of anything else I needed or wanted, I would already have bought it.
