Attack of the hydra-headed displays

Humanscale has a way to connect up to eight monitors.

Whether you're talking about a day trader, wannabe security guard, or voyeur extraordinaire, it seems that some people just can't get enough computer monitors to stack together. The latest example of this obsession comes from the "Paramount Parabolic Multi-Monitor Display" made by Humanscale.

Accommodating up to eight displays, the system tops even CineMassive's six- or seven-screen " MasterPlex " line. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of this set-up--which apparently provides only the rack and mounts, not the actual LCDs--is that it requires no tools. Additional monitors just "snap into place," Dvice says.

Convenient, perhaps, but we wouldn't want to be in front of them during an earthquake .
