The technology may allow people to watch two different programs on the same device.

Sony’s dual-view technology allows two people to see different images on the same TV depending on where they are seated in the room. The technology was recently demonstrated while two people played a first person shooter video-game on Playstation 3; a situation normally requiring a split-screen. But the technology aspires to do much more than improve the experience of playing video games. It is close to enabling two people to watch different shows on the same device.

The technology is not flawless by any means. A Sony representative warned that it will strain your eyes. Also, there is no way to split the audio yet, meaning one person will have to wear headphones, creating a less than sociable experience. Still, an exciting innovation from the creators at Sony.
