Report: GPS screens going 3D

3D GPS map-A new display technology allows a 3D image to be displayed without old-fashioned colored glasses

Anyone who’s played a modern video game knows there’s 3D and then there’s 3D. Many GPS systems already provide for virtual 3D displays of buildings and surface features, but now technology is getting ready to push in-car navigation systems to true 3D.

The display technology uses a dual-image LCD to shows pairs of slightly offset images that compose to form a 3D image with actual depth. The possibilities the technology could have for interface design, augmented reality and mapping have sparked the interest of some of the biggest names in the business.

One of the first companies to make the jump into 3D is likely to be Land Rover, which already has 3D-Ready screens available as an option in its vehicles.
I wonder what purpose that would serve? Is someone really going to lug around a PC with stereo drivers and a wired headset to watch "Spy Kids 3D" over and over again in the backseat of their car?

Good point.

I think it's probably for future S-3D game consoles.
I came here to chew bubblegum and to see 3D...and I'm all out of bubblegum!
