Sony has filed a patent with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for a glasses-free 3-D display that will adjust the picture so that the user gets an optimal view no matter how far or close to the screen.
In its application, “Stereoscopic Image Processing Method and Apparatus,” Sony defined its patent intent: “A stereoscopic image processing method for a stereoscopic image pair forming a 3-D image comprises the steps of evaluating whether the distance of a user is closer or further than a preferred distance from a 3-D image display upon which the stereoscopic image pair is to be displayed, and if the evaluation indicates that the user is further than the preferred distance from the 3-D image display, adjusting the respective displacements between corresponding image elements in the stereoscopic image pair, thereby changing the stereoscopic parallax in the 3-D image.”
What this means is that Sony is planning to resolve the disadvantages of no-glasses 3-D viewing in the home.
Critics have often noted blurring and other compromised effects that make the 3-D viewing experience less than desired just because the viewer is not in the best position. The success of autostereoscopic (glasses-free) 3-D has depended highly on the viewer’s angle and distance from the screen. With Sony’s 3-D viewing concept, the application would be able to detect a user’s distance from the screen and adjust the separation of images accordingly.

First off what are your thoughts? You just post some links and external quotes and nothing about what you think. Why did you share this?
I personally dont like 3D. I wear glasses and find the 3D glasses not so friendly for people who wear glasses. I get headaches watching 3D. I think it's cool tech but I dont see the hype with 3D. It just seems like a new fad.

Well, I'm a science guy and I like to share everything that could improve our understanding of everything that's around us.
I'm also fascinated by what human brain can create. I would never thought some years ago that one day we will be able to see in 3D without glasses.
It also arise some questions, as for example how exactly will it works for people like me that constantly wear glasses (I'm a myopic guy )...
