Desktop monitor curved in both directions

This thought came to me when someone suggested a portrait monitor to avoid lots of scrolling.

It occurred to me that you could have a section of a sphere to get the benefit of both a landscape and a portrait monitor.

Expanding on that, it would probably be better if it was square rather than circular.

Something about 90cm (35") square would be the ideal size. Anything wider and I've found that it requires too much head movement to be comfortable.

The radius would be the same in both directions and similar to the generally established norm for the current crop of curved wide screen landscape monitors. A desktop monitor would therefore have a radius of about 1800mm (1800R.)

Using current standards the resolution would be 3840x3840 pixels.
