In my opinion this is the future. People don't want to arrive home and have to put on googles or glasses to watch TV.. it's absurd, they'll get fed up. They want to go to the kitchen or bathroom, and have to take them off, put them back on, etc, etc.. and then you can't find where you last put them, and you don0t have enough for your friends.. it really doesn't work in real life.

That's why Toshiba is doing this, they already got the message. It's only a a matter of time until they get it right at the right price.

Same to you, because simultaneous 2D and 3D display is EXACTLY what they were talking about, along with what would seem to be the resulting headache.

From the original quoted article:
It is possible to show 2D images and 3D images at the same time by partially turning on the second panel.

CoderDunn and figgus haven't quite understood what 2D+3D is for. Basically you see it 2D when not using special glasses and 3D when you are. You don't see both 2D and 3D at the same time.

i am confused does this prototype use polarized glasses or no glasses at all? if glasses then can you see the 2D with the 3D on?

OK, so i am new to the whole 3D thing, but why can the theater show a 3D movie without 150 dollar glasses, but we dont have 3D projectors yet? seems like it would be much cheaper, even if it required 2 projectors, and 15 dollar glasses.....(free if you keep them after the theater's showing.)

ANY 3D display can show 3D and 2D at the same time. If in 3D you show something that located exactly on the plane of the screen, then you have 2D image. You can remove glasses (or not) and see it.

What is cool about this display is that YOU DO NOT NEED GLASSES! and the particular way they are doing it. The title should have been about this, not the strange 2D/3D statement.

Actually, I did read the article, which was why I quoted it.

Maybe I don't fully understand how this works, but after watching some poorly tacked-on 3D movies, it seems like to me a mix of 2D and 3D would be disorienting.

stereoscopic is now called "3d"
