There are a few articles like this one in the paper’s today about Sharp’s new DualView TVs, which uses LCD displays to allow people sitting at different angles to the TV to see different images, different programmes or different views of games. You could htink this is a good idea. But the one thing I noticed – in none of the articles I have seen do they mention how they intend to manage the sound. Do they expect people to wear headphones? One of the views on the story is that it will reduce arguments about who watches what – so it appears to do this by making sure they can’t hear each other and never talk. A step forward for family relationships.
