Japanese manufacturer Sharp have demonstrated a new LCD flat panel that allows for three different images to be viewed on a screen depending on the angle. The company introduced a dual-view LCD last July, which is already being used in cars.

The idea is that multiple people can use a single display for different purposes. For example, Sharp noted that a driver could be accessing directions, the passenger looking at shopping information, while those in the back seat view a movie. The technology divides the backlight into three different directions

:whistling: i read this and thought kinda the same thing. We drivers are going to have a whole new experience driving on the road with these drivers. Cellphones as it is should be banned when driving, today I got hit by someone talking on the phone and then on my way home almost got hit 2 more time by people on thier cell phones. I think driving at rush hour is a bigger risk due to the higher amout of people talking on cellphones back from work, and not the dence traffic itself.
