Toshiba Prototype Display Demoed at SID 2010

Toshiba unravels yet another prototype display that can show off 2D and 3D simultaneously. This new 12″ screen technology was shown off at the SID 2010 with no special glasses required. The whole concept seems to be a bit complicated although it looks like it took a couple of panels and special lenses to make it work.

Toshiba seems to have sandwiched a special panel with gradient-index lenses between a high-speed polarizer and the typical color LCD. This seems to make sense since we are waiting for the year where we may have to do away with the 3D glasses thing. No more 3D glasses in 2015? Let’s see.
