|"Much more like what I have visualized as a 3D display, including the horizontal aspect..
Far better than the 3D holographic "tank" visualizer mentioned in another article..
The military would do well to look at this system as the field commanders "battle board " of the future.. Bird's eye view, topographical features, 3D tanks, infantry traversing the terrain, all coming from a remotely operating arial spy plane... in real time.. "

|"Yes, Sharp did this first, but there were other people using lenticular lenses to direct raster columns to either eye even before Sharp. There's nothing particularly new about laying the display on it's back. "

|"Ejem, "R2D2 is plugged into the console at right, outside the picture. C3PO is just watching."
