    haha nice, but if you sat in the middle by yourself could you set it to be normal screened?

    I’ve been hearing a lot of news about this in recent months. I think that it has more of a commercial use than anything else. It seems too gimmicky too catch on as a standard household appliance, at least in the sense of replacing conventional television display types. I do think that TV will evolve though. I could be wrong though.

    This reminds me; I read something about a television in development by Philips that will convert 2D TV signals into 3D TV. Of course it’ll probably be another twenty years or so by the earliest until that becomes available but whatever...

    Cool idea, but I don`t see this as very marketable: Twice the price of a regular TV set; Can`t view from the middle of the screen, Must use headphones (for now), Not good when have a roomful of people (everyone must sit on one side of the screen to watch the ballgame? how many headphones you need for that!); When you see something cool you have to say, "Honey, look at this! but you have to come to the right side, oh and also take my headphones"; You will also need 2 remotes and use double the batteries.

    At one time the Forman Grille, and PC were considered "too gimmicky" too catch on as a standard household appliances too.. I`m sure if you switch both "sides" to the same program, it would work just like a regular TV.

    acctually, i saw this on my local news too, and they said that you can switch between both dual sides to only one side where you can listen through speakers... i dont know if the is right but that is what i have heard

    ^^^ the story is here.... if you look it says that it could be "set" so that it will display 2 different images... if it was always like that, it wouldnt have to be set.

    It`s a pretty good idea though. It just needs to be perfected.

    I never liked it when they are dubbing over a voice, they keep the original voice just as loud and the dubber has an accent, making it very hard to understand. Next time, give us subtitles instead.
    Though the idea isn`t very practical, it`s still very neat! I wasn`t expecting that, I was thinking of maybe two TV screens on one TV or something.
