Multimedia, AV Calm down, calm down. It was simply a manner of speech. No, they haven't developed the all too popular garments that render the wearer invisible, but we are about to take a look at some pretty spiffy technology that will doubtlessly save you some space in the family room as well as give you something to brag about to your somewhat less technologically inclined friends: "invisible" speakers.

Dual-screen laptops are just around the corner - do I smell a match made in heaven? :-)

So to get proper stereo sound you would sort of have to look in the middle between the two screens? ;)

No, No, No...

You look at the middle screen. You just need 2 17" screens for the left and right tweeter plus your main 23" screen for the subwoofer.

Think of it this way; for home audio you could purchase "Picture Frames" with build in speakers (you'll need to supply your own artwork) which you would then locate around the room for surround sound. The Big Screen TV becomes the subwoofer. I don't see any issues with this setup.

Anything is better then the tinny mono speaker found in most laptops.

PS: This can't be used with a touchscreen. (It could but touching the screen would mute the sound).
