When it comes to PC’s, you are either part of the master race or are being left behind in a cloud of dust. While some gamers and web users plop down in front of a 14 inch laptop screen or some archaic, bulky monitor, the realest fans are getting rigs and set ups that make them feel like they are part of the Matrix. What am I talking about, what am I dancing around? LG recently dropped a new monitor on us computer freaks that is set to revolutionize the way we use our PC’s. While you may have seen curved monitors before, the new 21:9 Curved Ultrawide Monitor from LG is a sight to behold. Not just for how sleek it is but for what it can do. Add to this the Dream Setup contest they are having, and you have something you geeks NEED to be a part of.
First, let’s talk about the LG Ultrawide a bit. The monitor is created and curved in such a way where it benefits any type of preferred user. Open multiple windows to the proper scale and choose just how big or wide they open. It is all set up with content designing tools, so each user can customize the monitor to their personal preferences. For gamers, this set up is even more perfect. We all know Twitch and game streaming are the thing right now, but many gamers encounter problems where they cannot play the game, film, and see themselves without one of those aspects getting in the way of the actual gaming. The LG Ultrawide Eyefinity Multi-Screen Solution makes it so you can DRAMATICALLY extend your field of view normally associated with wider screens. There is even a simple interface with their Multiplex Gaming Station that allows you to stream, play, and record all at once, with nothing getting in the way of your actual gaming. But wait, as they say: there’s more.
L.G is doing something special to prove this is not just another fancy, curved, computer monitor. The Dream Festival is set to be a festival quite unlike any of you have heard of before. Set up around the theme of “Dream Setup”, they will be putting us geeks to the test, with some hefty rewards in play, too. If American Idol helps pick the next singing sensation, this Dream Festival intends to do the same for the tech and viral world. To not jump on this opportunity would be foolish.
When people think festivals they imagine jam bands playing for hours while sweaty hippies dance in circles giggling insanely at one another. The Dream Festival is nothing like that at all. Imagine a place where PEOPLE LIKE US gather, virtually. Computer geeks who shine because of their knowledge of the web. What is viral. What is trending. How to make something pop. The Dream Festival aims to gather souls like us together, with the idea of using their Ultrawide Monitor to the best of its ability. We are talking about gamers and Youtubers all getting together (mentally, not physically) to see what this rig can do (all while also using the brightest minds to figure out how they can make the Ultrawide even better). Starting in September and carrying through December, LG wants to see what people can do with their rig. The best part? This is not some blatant commercial for their product. We are talking about cash prizes of TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS for the people who manage to use the Ultrawide best. And we are not just talking about one winner, either. There will be three top winners, all with awards given. Yes, LG wants to know what WE geeks can do with their Ultrawide, and are willing to pay cash to those who most impress them. I know for a fact there are some souls reading this who are capable of not only showing LG what their Ultrawide can do, but could also use an extra ten G’s. Hell, who couldn’t?
Basic info is this. Application period is from September 7th to September 25th. In that time, applicants take a pic or video of their current rig and post it on their social media outlet of choice. Then they must visit www.Ultrawidefestival.com. Once there, you submit your application by linking your SNS post URL and describing what your dream setup would be. Simple as that. At that point, just sit back and wait to see if you are one of the lucky few who get to show your stuff in hopes of winning your actual dream setup and a boatload of cash to back it up. Semi-finalists will be selected by the end of September, beginning of October, and winners will be chosen in October with finale party to be held in December. It’s a simple step to take towards changing the rest of your life (and landing a dream setup)!
So the long and short here is, the LG Ultrawide monitor is gonna be a game changer for our kind, and LG know this. They know this so much, in fact, they are putting their money where their tech is.Final question is, do you have what it takes to earn it? Step up and prove it to LG and the world. This might be your big chance to shine.
