Siemens’ Monster LCD

Siemens has just unveiled the ultimate LCD setup for design professionals, named the “Remote Expert Center”. This baby wouldn’t be bad for gaming either.

Actually made out of eight separate, Voltron-esque LCDs, this monitor is undoubtedly out of everyone save for the richest Bond villains. But just imagine playing Gears of War on this baby. Duck and roll baby. Duck and roll


Toshiba’s Flat-Bed 3D LCD

Toshiba showcased its flat-bed 3D display at IFA 2006. This innovative technology does not require the user to wear any special glasses to view the 3-dimensional images.

Viewing the display from an angle allows the viewer to experience 3-D images that stand out several centimeters from the surface of the display

World’s First 2D/3D Switchable LCD TV

LG has just unveiled the world’s first 2D/3D switchable, 42-inch HD LCD TV. This display uses Philips’ WOWvx 3D technology, “which provides auto-stereoscopic images without the need for those silly-looking, 50’s era blue and red glasses.” Other specifications have not yet been released .[Source 12]

Sharp’s Mobile 2-Way LCD

Sharp has now begun using its 2-way viewing LCD technology on mobile devices — including in-car entertainment systems and notebooks. With a parallax barrier superimposed on a normal TFT-LCD, these displays can show different information simultaneously depending on the viewing angle.

HoloVizio – A Real 3D Display

Similar to the Holo TVs we previously covered, “HoloVizio” by Holografika is a next-generation display “for 3D visualization.”

• No glasses needed, the 3D image can be seen with unassisted naked eye
• Viewers can walk around the screen in a wide field of view seeing the objects and shadows moving continuously as in the normal perspective. It is even possible to look behind the objects, hidden details appear, while others disappear (motion parallax)
• Unlimited number of viewers can see simultaneously the same 3D scene on the screen, with the possibility of seeing different details
• Objects appear behind or even in front of the screen like on holograms
• No positioning or head tracking applied
• Spatial points are addressed individually
