Innovations Pick – Dual Viewing Television

Sony is releasing a TV with a new dual-screen technology. The technology “allows two people to see different images on the same TV depending on where they are seated in the room. The technology was recently demonstrated while two people played a first person shooter video-game on Playstation 3; a situation normally requiring a split-screen… It is close to enabling two people to watch different shows on the same device.” Like 3D technology before it, it will currently strain your eyes, and there is currently no way to split the audio besides headphones (that will be a challenging problem to solve), but expect to see more demos of this over the next two years.
