Comments on Toshiba Flatbed 3D Display
Remember when R2D2 and Chewbacca were playing a chess-like game with projected pieces? Toshiba invented a table like that. (Read the complete story)

"It's Chewbacca and 3CPO playing."

"R2D2 is plugged into the console at right, outside the picture. C3PO is just watching."

"the article is about flatbed 3D displays...quite interesting development...who cares about whether CP30 is playing with chewbacca or playing with himself...gez ‹br› (Well, you see, this is a science and science fiction website, and that's the science fiction part...)"

"The last yaer sharp presents the firts monitor of this kind, working for any kind of computers i think that toshiba is fallowing step here"

"Much more like what I have visualized as a 3D display, including the horizontal aspect.. Far better than the 3D holographic "tank" visualizer mentioned in another article.. The military would do well to look at this system as the field commanders "battle board " of the future.. Bird's eye view, topographical features, 3D tanks, infantry traversing the terrain, all coming from a remotely operating arial spy plane... in real time.. "

"Yes, Sharp did this first, but there were other people using lenticular lenses to direct raster columns to either eye even before Sharp. There's nothing particularly new about laying the display on it's back. "

"Ejem, "R2D2 is plugged into the console at right, outside the picture. C3PO is just watching." NOBODY CARES!!!, here we are talking about that display, not about the stupid TV program."

"nice, but they're nowhere near as good as these ones:"

"Website Information TOSHIBA interactive 3D display (new version?) TOSHIBA non-interactive 3D display (old version?) TOSHIBA website (old version?) "
(Akira Morishita 10/14/2006 11:40:09 AM)
"Akira - thanks, I'm going to add a new story for this one (see it here)."

"I've seen an upright projector of this sort at a grocerystore here in Oklahoma back in '06 advertising foodsI was really impressed,and have been waiting to see more,but it's only been 4 years.Wait till gaming consoles get it (can't wait)!"
