Sharp plans top use the tech in car navigations systems, letting the driver see a map, for example, which passengers can rest easy watching the FootBall game, or a DVD playing.  The biggest hurdle with two-way screens is when viewing them head on – they tend to display a combination of both images at once, meaning you have the view the screens at an angle for them to work properly.

The technology could be a real boon to parents on road trips to the cottage where kids fight over what to watch in the back seat – although you’d presumably need two separate DVD players and it’s unclear how it would work.  However, with summer coming up, the news no doubt has cottage-ready parents savouring the sounds of a silent road trip.
