Project: Rogue, Part 17

I love days like today… I had a long awaited package on my doorstep when I got home.

My new Matrix Orbital display has arrived, after a several month backorder. It is the GX Typhoon MCE. Let’s take a look at this thing…

Everything out of the box…

This thing is just begging to be modded…

Since this is the Media Center Edition, it comes with a remote. It can handle all MCE functions.

The model I received is the Tri-color unit. That basically means that I can change the display to any one of three colors, and any combination in between. I’ve taken a few shots to give you some idea of how cool that feature is.

I could go on, but you get the idea…

The LCD uses LcdStudio for it’s interface and display design. The software is pretty slick. It’s basically drag and drop. You can add and resize display components on the fly. The software supports a ton of additional plugins for displaying information. ATITool, Fraps, RivaTuner, Speedfan, iTunes, etc.

Here’s a short video of me adding and dragging a few things around…
