I like 3D and wouldn't mind having a TV or computer monitor that supports the tech in my home. I don’t want to have to wear glasses though. LG has a new display that is 3D capable and needs no glasses called the DX2500 with a 25-inch screen. This is the sort of display that a lot of people that are interested in 3D have been waiting for.

The DX2500 uses parallax barrier technology and can show the 3D effects with no glasses needed. The tech in the display also supports head tracking as well to ensure that the user gets the best quality possible when viewing the monitor. That head tracking tech means that the viewer can venture outside the narrow range of viewing angles that parallax barrier displays normally impose.

The head tracking is done using a camera embedded inside the monitor that can detect changes in the user's eye and head position in real time. Using that positional data the display is then able to adjust itself for optimal 3D effects. The display is also capable of converting 2D to 3D for movies and games with a click. The DX2500 is available in Korean now and will ship globally in early 2012 at an undisclosed price.
