New technology amazes me!

HOLY COW!!!! How crazy is this?! A tv that projects different images depending on your viewing angle. What will they think up next???

Sharp Develops 'Two-Way Viewing-Angle' LCD
By YURI KAGEYAMA, AP Business Writer Fri Jul 15, 9:13 AM ET

At last, a way to end squabbles over which TV channel to watch — without buying a second set. Sharp Corp. has developed a liquid-crystal display that shows totally different images to people viewing the screen from the left and the right.

One person can be surfing the Internet, using the display as a PC screen, while another watches a downloaded movie or TV broadcast. It also works for watching two TV channels: One person can watch baseball while another watches a soap opera.

I mean, I know I'm easily distracted by shiny things ... but I can't be the only one that thinks this is pretty out there. (or can I?? :))

You might be. Cuz I'm afraid of the subliminal messages or other crazy mind-washing things they could broadcast using that technology. Hi! Can you say conspiracy theory much?!

Hey, I'm with ya there, sista!

But I do think this technology could be cool. Especially if they can get it to work with people. Cuz then I can have all the Bon Bons I want ........ and yet my other projected image could be young, hot and perpetually thin!!!

I think we're on to something here. Make it so, Sharp!

So...your TV would have a split personality. How would TiVo handle that? How do you program your VCR? You know I am technically challenged on this front. But I can make you a project implementation plan for the new technology and help you plan the training for it.
