LG 23-inch 3D LCD is world’s brightest [Video]

LG have unveiled a 23-inch LCD monitor which, the company claims, could pave the way for low-cost 3D computing and entertainment.  The full-HD 1080p panel uses traditional time-sequential split-image technology to offer individual views of each image for each eye, which the brain combines into a 3D whole.  However, by integrating this 3D technology into the panel itself, LG can make the panel brighter and reduce the complexity in the accompanying viewing glasses.
