Default Using multiple laptop screens on one computer

A friend and I have came across a lot of laptop screens and are looking to place as many as possible onto a wall in picture frames while they are running the screen saver Electric sheep. We were wondering how hard it would be to wire the screens together (4 or 5 mirrored to a computer if possible). Any ideas on how this would work....if so there are many possibilities to this idea.

Any help is appreciated.

have you looked at a photoframe project before? the projects are actually done using all of the laptops components not just the screen. the screens basically won't work without the laptop motherboard.
