Forget about silly-looking, uncomfortable 3-D glasses. Philips’s new 3-D displays create the illusion of depth by overlaying an LCD screen with tiny lenses that direct slightly different images to the viewer’s eyes. The illusion persists within a 120º viewing area. The displays work only with specially created content, so Philips is currently marketing them for use in promotional displays–at malls, casinos, and movie theaters, for instance. But it hopes to have 3-D TVs in homes within a few years.
