    One step closer....
    Get this on a curved screen and seated cockpit games will be awesome!

    I wonder if it's much better than a Nintendo 3DS type screen.....

    Thats my initial thought - I assume it will be, as the main issues with all parallax screens i've seen are viewing angles & brightness. I assume based on the press release here that the SR Display tech effectively addresses these issues so they may work better in a professional environment.

    Looking forward to this making its way into the consumer worlds in a few years

    Re: Sony announces the Spatial Reality Display (SR Display)

    If I'm being honest, and I'm arguably the target market for this, it isn't all that impressive imo because it's still fundamentally a 2D image on a screen, it's not like you can walk around to the other side and see the back of the model.

    It's basically a normal lcd display showing a 3D rendered image in 'real time' with an automatic 'rotation' of said image based on head/eye tracking, in the most simplistic way it's essentially a big screen version of a vr headset.

    I've been able to do essentially the same thing they're 'offering' in most of my 3D packages, albeit without the eye tracking for years.... all you need is a dark room, a not overly bright lcd display (so it blends) and a dark 3D environment so the object looks like it's floating, then you can use something like a 3D connexion device to rotate around etc. You do need some beefy hardware to do photo realisism in real time though.

    EDIT: Had a thought about Leap Motion tracking etc and got this idea in my head that this might already be possible using that and a normal display, at least in unity/unreal (basically same software Sony is saying to use)
