I’m still waiting for my flying car, my personal robot assistant and my complete meals in pill form, but a little bit of the science fictional future looks to have just finally arrived – the first affordable non-vaporware 3D computer monitor is on sale right now. Whether it’s actually any good, I have no idea – but it’s a start.
One thought on “First 3D VDU launched”
Believe it or not, I attended a presentation whigh showed a working 3D monitor (CRT-based) with which polarized glasses were used, fully operational and in use for medical imaging purposes, way back in the late 1980’s. It worked via an electronically-controlled polarizable filter which was placed in front of the CRT display. Tthe display oscillated between images for the left and right eye, while the filter oscillated in-sync wit it, between vertical and horizontal polarization. It worked very nicely. Now I wonder why it took ~20 years to make this technology cheap enough for the mass market!?
