Quote"The 3D monitor should be launched commercially before the end of this year," a Sharp representative said. It is expected to cost about $3,190 (3,000 euros). The prototype on display is a 15-inch flat-panel display. Sharp explained that the screen contains a "parallax barrier" thin-film transistor (TFT) panel that splits the light generated by the monitor in such a way that alternate columns of pixels are seen by each eye. Thus, each eye sees a slightly different image.
