It's 'possible' but certainly NOT simple, and I wouldn't have thought it's cost effective at all.

I guess you would need to write your own driver for the display. I'm not sure if the displays themselves are equipped with any kind of intelligence (like a regular graphics display for example) or if everything is done in software on the PC side. Either way you're looking at a lot of work! And you'd need access to datasheets for the display itself.

Seperate the active matrix from the plastic frame, and use it to make an adjustable light transmissive window.
