    Will someone look this up to see if they have any sketches? I'm having a hard time visualizing this. It certainly is a cool idea, though. And I guess viewing angles aren't going to be an issue like they are with many LCD screens. :)

    Has nothing to with holograms, other than giving a 3D view.

    If you have a TIFF viewer installed, view the patent images here. (Or click Help on that image and look for a TIFF viewer control.)

    Apparently they display the 3D by projecting L-R images on a screen with little pixel domes that reflect the two images to your eyes.

    Kind of like one of those plastic 3D postcards.
