Truly Useful Technology 

It appears as though the simmering civil war in my own living room may yet be averted:
A new television will allow two different programs to air at the same time depending where one sits.

Japanese electronics firm Sharp Corp on Thursday unveiled the liquid crystal display (LCD) set that can simultaneously display different images into the right and left sides of the screen through a backlight.

Viewers will get an uninterrupted view no matter where they sit, but what they see will change depending on the angle, the company said in a statement.

Sharp will begin mass production of the display, billed as the world's first dual-view LCD, by the end of the month, with the product hitting the shelves later this year.
