NEC wants to throw a curve into the monitor market. The CRVD-LMD 42-inch display may produce a cool image, but it’s what on the outside that counts: a funky wrap-around design.

Now while this may be cool for close-up gaming action, what does it do for those couch-loving potatoes? Well, aside from boasting a 2,880 x 900 resolution, a speedy response time, and 10-30 percent productivity improvements, the unit also packs in a light engine that combines LED lighting and a DLP chip.
