Future screens

Just an idle thought...

The trouble with any putative 3D computer or TV screen is that the greater the apparent depth of field the narrower the viewing angle. The ultimate 3D screen is your bathroom mirror where you have to position yourself precisely for best viewing.

TVs are often viewed by several people at the same time so will need a shallow "depth". Computer monitors are generally only viewed by the user; a deeper field is therefore possible.

So, future screens will have an extra adjustment. In addition to brightness and contrast they will need a depth control.
