This is the real sort of 3D we’re talking about, now, as opposed to audio 3D… The LG 2D/3D LCD is an autostereoscopic display, which means that it fools your brain to thinking that a flat image has depth. A few other companies at CES had 3D displays that require some sort of glasses, but this one works (and, by George, it actually works) if you just stand there and look at it. Of course, the effect doesn’t transmit well in the above pic, so you’ll just have to take my word for it that the hamburger in the fake commercial is tasty in all three dimensions. The only caveat is that you have to be standing in a fairly specific spot to get the autostereoscopy to work like it’s supposed to… they actually had an “x” on the floor, but it’s more flexible than that. The visual effect can be a bit strange at times, but I’d take it over a pair of glasses any day.
