The New Scientist has reported on a breakthrough in 3D collaborative technology demonstrated at the SIGGRAPH computer graphics and animation conference held in LA in July. French visual simulation company Immersion, demonstrated an interactive 3D table-top display which can be operated by two users at once from opposite sides of the table.

The system uses polarised 3D glasses and an active shutter 3D system to alternate the images required by each user to provide them with the appropriate image of the table’s content.The following video, produced by New Scientist, explains the concept.
