Philips unveils Dual View Gaming TV screens

Posted in Philips by Conner Flynn on March 8th, 2011

Philips has just unveiled some new TV screens especially for gamers. The displays come with a new function called Dual View Gaming, which allows users to play multiplayer games without having to use split screen. This is great because it will prevent cheating and give players more screen room to view while playing.

It’s similar to what Sony revealed last month, but we don’t know if Philips is using the same technology as Sony or not. Players use special glasses to separate what they are seeing. So, would you be interested in buying this?

It is powered by a lithium-ion battery for portability and has three dynamic cutting elements mounted on a GyroFlex 3D platform, allowing it to conform to the curves and angles of your face, while the AquaTec seal lets you shave wet or dry. Anything to shove 3D in the name, I suppose.
