    Crikey.. what have Sony “laid down” then? Have I missed something in my PSP/3 world?


  2. If rumours are to believed the screen could be using parallax barrier technology. This is used on the screen of the latest Range Rover so that the driver and front seat passenger can see different content. http://www.engadget.com/2009/04/08/2010-range-rover-gets-12-inch-dual-view-touchscreen/

    The technology was developed by Sharp in Oxford, England and was announced in 2002: http://www.sle.sharp.co.uk/research/optical_imaging/downloads/first_announcement.pdf They have put it in a number of notebook computers: http://www.physorg.com/news3296.html

    So it is well proven, mass produced, technology.

    Yes it is a Parallax Barrier. Which is really no different from those little “hologram” stickers you could get as kids in the early 1990s. They have just made it a much higher “res” in effect.

    Cheap and old technology slapped onto the same old same old. There will be a slew of these out soon. Like I said in your other 3D post wait 3 years until the real 3D tech comes out. This is all just half rate temporary crap being over-hyped and over-priced.

    You are right that 3D is here to stay mind you. There simple fact that this can be marketed at all speaks volumes.
