Sunny Ocean: Glasses-Free 3D, 84" Display

Back in March we reported that Sunny Ocean had a glasses-free display at CEBIT. This potentially revolutionary gizmo was 27" in size and able to be viewed from some 64 different angles. At that time, the company claimed that a similar display of 100" was possible. While that claim seemed rather far-fetched then, Sunny Ocean has delivered another proof-of-concept that comes in very close to that size. Slashgear reports that they are showing off an 84" glasses-free display.

This version seems to be viewable at less angles than the smaller screen. They only claim that it is viewable from "several points" in a room. While that could mean many things, one would think that if the number were equal or greater than their previous claim of 64, they would be bragging about it. Still, a large-size glasses-free 3D display suitable for living room use is impressive enough. And the company does claim that their product will work for "large spaces" and "public venues".

Sunny Ocean's new toy will be at the IFA show next month, along with distribution agreements. That means we could be seeing this baby in stores in the near future. Since the future of 3D relies on glasses-free technology becoming the standard, this product has the potential to really change things up. 3D adoption has been somewhat impressive so far, but there's no way it'll become mainstream until

1. The price of capable TVs drops.

2. People no longer need to wear dorky glasses to use it.

Of course, even both of those things happening would be no guarantee of 3D's future as a format. The entertainment industry is pushing it hard right now, but they'll only follow it as far as the money goes. It may turn out that the eye-strain and the fact that it just doesn't work for between 4% and 10% of the population are hurdles too large to jump.
