LG display uses eye-tracking to keep glasses-free 3D in check

Daily readers will know that we have a love-hate relationship with 3D and the growing availability of glasses-free 3D gadgets. While it's certainly great to not have to don dorky eyewear, 3D on glasses-free devices have a limited field of view. LG's 20-inch 3D display solves that issue with a eye-tracking.

Say hello to LG's 20-inch DX2000, an LED backlit glasses-free 3D display with an integrated webcam that tracks your eyes, so the 3D effects protrude from any angle. No more "sweet-spots" where the 3D needs to be viewed straight-on, like on the Nintendo 3DS and HTC EVO 3D.

Other goodies on the DX2000 include an on-the-fly 2D to 3D conversion, 1600x900 resolution, 5ms response time, 1,000:1 contrast ratio, 250 cd/m2 brightness level, anti-glare coating and a DVI and HDMI port.

If it works as well as LG claims it does, eye-tracking might just be the future of glasses-free 3D.

LG plans to sell the DX2000 for about $1,200. Not cheap, but early-adopters never have it easy.
