Hitachi Developing Glasses-Free 3D LCD TV

Electronics maker Hitachi is currently developing a technology to make glasses-free 3D LCD TVs using Sharp’s parallax barrier technology (supposedly used in the Nintendo 3DS and that mysterious StreamTV panel). Last year at CEATEC Hitachi showed off a 10-inch prototype with a VGA screen, which used 16 projectors to create the glasses-less 3D, which is visible dependent on the viewing angle. Experts always claim that glasses would prove the barrier for most people considering buying a 3DTV, but it’s not yet known whether the parallax barrier technology can actually compete with what we’ve seen from Panasonic, who’s the only manufacturer with a 3D plasma out.
