CNET reports Sharp showed off a fairly impressive demo of its glasses-free 3D displays at the CEATEC expo in Japan.
That's where Sharp comes in, and with a fairly impressive demo. The Japanese consumer electronics maker has two glasses-free 3D displays here at Ceatec measuring 3.8-inches and 10.6. inches. Both are still prototypes--unlike Toshiba's 12 and 20-inch TVs scheduled to hit stores in Japan by the end of the year--but work remarkably well.
The 10.6 inch version had the clearest 3D effect, and a better viewing angle, but both required you look pretty much straight on at the device and from close range. However because of their size, which are practical for a mobile phone and tablet or smaller laptop, respectively, it works.
