This projector screen lets gamers see two perspectives simultaneously



The MirraViz MultiView Screen allows two off-the-shelf DLP projectors to layer images on top of one another so two people can view two different images simultaneously. Tech reporter Nick Statt got a first look at the gadget at CES Unveiled 2018. Subscribe: https://goo.gl/G5RXGs

    Good for parents with kids that want to watch different things at the same time.

    this is resolving a problem that we don't have also, gamers don't use projectors, as projecting pricing is a bit weird anyway

    Fun fact the Jaguar XJ from 2011has this kind of technolofy in its infotainment screen.
    You can see it yourself at 0:59 of this review: "Jaguar XJ saloon review – CarBuyer"

    Or if you're too lazy to search that here's the link https://youtu.be/9q0rGdm1UQI?t=59

    Lg tried it with its 3d TV-s. Depending on which of the glasses you weared, you saw another image. Sadly the only game to support this, was halo 4

    I used this before and your eyes start to strain and become sore after 15 mins.

    If you already have two different projectors, why wouldn't you just use both and have two screens

    Sony had that back in 2011. They created an actual 26” Active 3D 1080p LED Tv with a refresh rate of 240HZ and people could watch 2 things at the same time using their technology called Simulcast. The Playstation TV was priced at $500 and it was quite ahead of its time which is why it was pretty pricey. I was lucky enough to get it for $100 at Best Buy during black friday 2011. I still have the Playstation TV but technology changed so quickly that I now game on a 70” Sony 4K TV.

    Judging by the video, the screen just uses the same "technology" as those holographic fridge magnets. Not worth $500

    I can see this working with games, when both people on the couch are playing the same game, but with movies? Not without headphones or some other way of having different audio for each viewer. At least with the game the audio should be more-or-less the same.

    Now, you could have it such it's the same movie, but one side has subtitles/captions on, and the other doesn't, however that is beyond niche.

    So… Is it a lenticular display or something? Because I call BS on the "multiple layers" thing

    If you close the angle a little bit you can have glassless 3D. Like the 3DS

    1) consoles need to be compatible with these projectors. Good luck getting the current gens to do that.
    2) Not sure what parents will buy this for their kids
    3) so you live alone, ok then you don't need it and you likely play with friends online
    4) other use is for when two people want to watch something different? How impractical is that? lol Two floating projectors in my living room and we're required to wear a headset. I don't want to live in a house like that.

    interesting tech but i bet this was discovered by mistake and now they're trying to market it.

    LG had Dual Play on its 3D TVs years ago, and it only required cheap 3D glasses. The only thing impressive about this is the light rejection capabilities of the screen. They should make a screen specifically for Ultra Short Throw Projectors to be used in the daytime, a much more useful product.

    But you'd still need 2 consoles, and with it requiring 2 projectors + the price it would just be cheaper to purchase 2 x UHD tv's.
