It doesn't produce an image dispersed through space, it's just another
variation on schemes that send a different image to each eye.


Does that design not require the viewer's head to be in a very specific
location w.r.t. the monitor to achieve the 3D effect? It also
effectively halves the spatial resolution of the display, since pixel
pairs are used to handle the binocular image generation.
