The Wall Street Journal reports that the latest product under development at Google’s experimental Google X division are “giant TVs” made up of many smaller displays pieced together to create one seamless screen:

Google’s secretive advanced-projects lab is developing a display composed of smaller screens that plug together like Legos to create a seamless image, according to three people familiar with the project.

The various modular pieces that make up the display, according to the report, would allow for the ability to create large screens of varying sizes and shapes. WSJ notes that head of the Google X display division Mary Lou Jepsen, who previously founded various startups specializing in display technologies, is leading the project.

While the report doesn’t provide specifics on how far along in development the project is or how large the displays are, it does say the display is large enough to fill a living-room wall.

Google often speaks publicly about many of its Google X projects, such as its driverless cars or Google Glass, but so far the company isn’t commenting on reports of the large scale display project.
