Samsung has unveiled a new concept for a glasses-free 3D monitor at CES 2024, and it’s pretty impressive. The monitor, aptly named the Samsung 2D/3D monitor, uses eye tracking to transform any game from a flat 2D image into 3D.

I had a chance to try out the monitor with Lies of P, and at some point, I forgot I was in a CES demo. Playing one of my favorite games from last year, bolstered with a proper 3D image, I was content to sit and play for as long as Samsung would let me.

Folks at DigitalTrend mentioned.

One of the best things about the Samsung 2D/3D monitor is that it has no narrow sweet spot like other glasses-free 3D displays, thanks to its eye-tracking technology. One could move their head around freely without the 3D effect breaking.

The monitor also has a 2D mode, so you can switch back and forth between 2D and 3D as needed. This is a great feature, as you probably wouldn’t want to use 3D all the time.

Here are the OLED monitors revealed by Samsung at CES 2024.

The Samsung 2D/3D monitor is not perfect, though. They noticed some screen tearing on background elements when panning the camera in Lies of P. However, this is a minor issue compared to the potential benefits of this technology.

I’m excited to see where Samsung takes this. The company says it will have more details later this year. Still, for now, this remains an interesting bit of CES tech that may become a proper product.
