A new development ib airport security has profound implications for the rest of us, as Sharp Labs create 3D monitors, which allow the airport staff to see length, breadth and depth of scanned objects from a flat screen.

One of four finalists for the eminent MacRobert engineering award, works by turning the parallax barrier off and on again at will. The parallax barrier is a years old innovation, that was placed in front, or behind a liquid crystal screen, to separate the image into two separate viewpoints.

Woth a screen that can turn the barrier off or on with a simple switch, the same display can be used for 3D or 2D views instantaneously.
