      I got an even better idea, since the OLED is bendable we can make concentrical layers, like a lot of sphere one in the other and since from what you have showed, from the back of the clear TV display we dont see nothing, then everyone watching the sphere TV will see only his prespective and also his own background since it wont be visible from the back(the other sides of the sphere). its a really cool topic tho. And its already possible specially the first one (transparent TV + 3D tv tech of few years ago) Make a video on this or holograms in the future including this linus!

                "So what OS DO we need to boot" ...XP? "...Jesus" :D
                And that ludicrous interface chain. Reminds me of some insane things I've had to actually do to get archaic stuff working for actual productive use. Sure you could have taken it further if power demand wasn't an issue (that's the point where you just start patching in additional supply partway along the chain).
                Though seems a bit of a cheat that at least one (two?) of the things was/were (a) video card(s), and another wasn't even really a PCI(e) device at all. Would that be a technical disqualification on grounds of Not Weird, or simply not qualifying?
                Personal choice: the strange remote PCIe link abusing USB3 connectors for its own evil ends.

                  Haha, I love that you couldn't find a computer old enough / low enough spec to have a PCI slot. We've finally moved into the fully post-PCI era.

                    Reminds me... I really need to find somewhere that'll sell me a PCI riser (not PCIe), double sided if possible. Because reasons.
