Why on earth would you want that many gazelles anyway?

Motorized Portrait to Landscape Monitor

Screen rotates from portrait to landscape automatically

LCD monitors' bases are already rotatable from portrait to landscape. But it isn't motorized.

I propose an LCD monitor base which rotates automatically. When viewing a slideshow of photos, both landscape and portrait photos would be FULL screen.

The photo viewing software would need to be updated, and a hardware driver installed to control rotation motor.

       Why not?

       Or a huge circular LCD screen.

       Or a rubber screen that could be stretched to any aspect ratio required.

       Won't this put monitor-turners out of business?

       One of those wooden backscratchers and some duct tape, put it on a landscape/portrait alternate slideshow of your holiday snaps, and you could use it to pet the dog and induce sea-sickness in unwanted guests at the same time.   

       There are digital photo frames that do this. Some are wall- mounted and some sit on a table. I think I've posted links to them on some other idea that's pretty much the same as this one.
