The New York Times has a feature on naked-eye 3DTV developments by a company called Deep Light, impressive technology that doesn't require "goofy eyeware." 3D is actually just the start of it, since the screen is multidimensional of sorts, able to display different 3D images or programming to different viewers at the same time via time multiplexing technology, " the only rear-projection no-glasses 3-D system to date." It's hard to predict exactly how the technology may ultimately be applied, but Deep LIght co-founder Dan Mapes puts it this way:
"Imagine 3-D TV hooked up to the Net. I'm in California having shared experiences with friends in Indonesia. Forging deeper connections with people anywhere in the world will be one of the key factors in creating a true global village."
Sounds a bit altruistic, but why not? The company plans to unveil it at next winter's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
