You might not like it but this is the most optimum layout for programming

@xssfox If we continuously rotate the monitor, we should be able to take advantage of the persistence of vision effect to display the whole circle.

Comes with bonus temporal antialiasing at no added cost!


@keturn @xssfox The engineering required to rotate the display at 24rpm, and safely connect the cables, are left as an exercise for the reader

@aurynn @keturn @xssfox The 24 rpm part is easy, eg with a slip ring; that’s one rotation per ~2 seconds. 3600 rpm (60 rps for 60 fps POV) is more difficult, but probably achievable.

Depending on use cases it might be easier to have a wireless data connection to give the monitor the signal to display, and just use the slip ring for power 🤔
