Sharp triple view display the best accessory for your car
Sharp amazed everyone last year by developing the the first two-way viewing-angle LCD and the switchable viewing-angle LCD. This time they have developed the Triple Directional Viewing LCD, a display that controls the viewing angle so that the display can show different images from the left, right, and center simultaneously. Using a proprietary parallax barrier on a standard TFT LCD, the screen splits light in three directions—left, right, and center—and displays three separate images on the same screen at the same time. So while driving you can see the GPS navigation your kid at the backseat can enjoy Ace Combat on his PS2 while your wife in the passenger seat checks out tourist sites and restaurants all in full-screen view.
Sharp Triple Directional Viewing LCD is also ideal for multipurpose signs in public: it could display three different ads for stores or restaurants, each aimed at people walking in a certain direction.
