COOL!!! Free form shaped LCD
I stumbled on this today. VERY cool!!! Round, triangle, polyhexawhatever shaped LCD panels are now possible. Think it's time to plan my new instrument cluster!
Varitronix is able to produce free shape mono LCD displays ideal for specialist applications. No longer limited by rectangular or square displays, free shape LCD technology can create displays in any shape or size required including circular and multi-sided shapes. Creative consumer products, automotive instrument clusters can all benefit from this latest development

Thats sick, any word on what the prices will be?
It said something about standard minimums in the write up.
I hope the trickle down effect will commence, and they will be available out of some factory in China for pittance in about a year.
