Consumer Electronics Can Be A Bit Bonkers At Times.

Mad, right?

You'd need glasses to do it - we're not going to get into the actual ins and outs of how it works ('cos we don't really know) - but it essentially allows different people to pull separate images out of the same screen.

It seems the main purpose for the patent is achieving split-screen multiplayer without the err... Split-screen. Simply, one player would see a different image to the other player, removing the need to cut the screen in half.

The patent goes as far as allowing for more than two players — enabling the possibility for two separate 3D images on the same screen.

Whether this stuff will ever come to fruition, we'll wait and see. You're going to need a 3D TV if it ever does though.
