    Wouldn't it have been a lot easier to buy another TV set. A decent
    one costs around $200

    TOKYO - Will the digital age bring an end to squabbles over which TV
    channel to watch? Sharp Corp. is coming out with a new product that
    may help. The Japanese electronics firm has developed a liquid-crystal
    display that shows totally different images to people viewing the
    screen from the left and the right.

    The "two-way viewing-angle LCD," announced by the Japanese consumer
    electronics maker Thursday, can send light from the backlight
    separately to the right and left.

    And so one person can be surfing the Internet, using the display as a
    PC screen, while another watches a downloaded movie or TV broadcast.
    It also works for watching two TV channels: one person can watch
    baseball while another watches a soap opera.

    As I understand it, no one likes to wear head/ear phones while
    watching TV, so the sound effects maybe terrifying... :)

    And... What about hanling for the audio? What if you want privacy when
    doing your own thing. My preference would be for separates.

    Yes I think there's probably virtually zero consumer market for that
    product, even given space contraints, it would make more sense to have
    smaller personal displays.
     
  6. Typical of MSN "news" they missed the primary point of this LCD panel,
    whichis to provide a 3D viewing capability without the need for those
    special glasses. As a side effect it can shown two different images to
    viewers separated by more than six degrees.
