Google is known for delving into the driverless car and the upcoming wearable computer that they simply call Glass. Driving the company in surprising new directions is something that they relish. Recently, the US Patent & Trademark Office published a patent application from Google that reveals yet another off-beat product that is on their minds. They've designed a new way of creating a wall size display that's cost effective using a seamless display panel tilting method that uses an optical expansion layer and flexible displays to eliminate distortion.
Google's patent FIGS. 3A-3B, noted in our cover graphic (left), are a cross-sectional view and a plan view, respectively, of an embodiment of a tiled display using display panels.
Google's patent FIG. 7A noted below illustrates a technique where one display panel operates as a master and the remaining display panels operate as slaves that communicate with the master.
Google's patent FIG. 9 noted above illustrates an embodiment of a process for image registration to cure misalignments between display tiles of a multi-panel display.
For those wanting to explore the details of this invention, review Google's patent pending idea.Considering that this is a patent application, the timing of such a product to market is unknown at this time.
