3D displays inch closer

— 5:50 AM on October 13, 2003

C|Net has a story on a new 3D screen technology being demoed in notebooks:

The Actius RD3D comes with a specialized 15-inch screen with a so-called parallax barrier that lets people view 3D images or run 3D applications without special glasses. For example, bodies and bullets appear to fly all over the place in a version of popular game "Quake" that has been adjusted to work on Sharp's 3D monitors.
For gamers, 3D display technology sounds pretty sweet, but there are also plenty of business applications for 3D displays. Heck, with the next Windows GUI reportedly using 3D elements, display technology usually reserved for science fiction movies may not be that far from our own desktops.
Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
