LG to ramp up its production of glasses-free 3D displays; adopts eye-tracking technology to make them better
Glasses-free 3D displays are still in their baby years and are clearly nowhere near as perfect as we wish they were. However, it looks like LG is committed to taking the technology behind them a step beyond and will bring some more 3D goodness to the mainstream market.

The Korean consumer electronics giant has officially announced that its D2000 3D monitor is entering mass production and should hit its domestic market within a month. The 20-inch panel uses the parallax barrier technology to magically bring the third dimension to life, yet what makes the D2000 special is its ability to track the eyes of the viewer thanks to its built-in camera. In theory, that should expand the annoyingly narrow sweet spot that owners of the LG Optimus 3D or the HTC EVO 3D are so familiar with.

Now, what does that have to do with mobile devices, you may ask. Well, the fact that LG is putting a lot of effort in researching glasses-free 3D displays means that the technology involved will evolve faster than we assume. Tablets using parallax barrier layers on their screens backed up by eye-tracking technology may become reality pretty soon, and the next generation of 3D-enabled smartphones may put their predecessors to shame.

Would you consider getting a smartphone or a tablet with a glasses-free 3D display if all the imperfections of the technology get taken care of? Feel free to drop a comment for us below and tell us what you think.

Evolution of glass-free 3D displays, good news! :)

Also there is some more interesting info about glass-free 3D:

I wonder if this works with Nvidia 3D vision.

Hey I am all for technology becoming even more viable. This is very cool indeed. If it can track my eyes then issue of the sweet spot on my HTC Evo 3D will be no more. I am already so used to the sweet spot that I have no problem. But when first time users see my phone it takes them a second or 2 because I coach them & they find the 3D sweet spot fairly quickly. Without the coaching it can take maybe 30 seconds to a minute because they don’t know how to hold the device the correct way. So again YES keep the good work. If they can make a 52" 1080p HDTV with this type of 3D tech then maybe I will buy one, because I can't see myself relaxing & having to put on some huge, goofy 3D glasses at home. lol

I havent seen the paralax up close but if there isnt a loss in quality and they can track your movements, then I'd be interested.

I dont know how well that would work at home though if u have 3 or 4 people watching a movie... who gets the sweet spot?

The eye tracking software would eliminate the sweet spot problem, making this type of 3D technology more viable. The HDTV will be smart enough to track everyone's eyes when you get to the HDTV level of the new technology. I am sure this is a couple of years away, but they got it on 20” monitors, so larger displays are naturally next!
