today i learned – thurs 16th mar 2016

so, as you know, i’m currently on a photoshoot. for said photoshoot, i’ve been driving a range rover πŸ‘πŸ» that, today we found out, has the mad dual screen infotainment screen thing! 😬

naturally, the sheer amazement and wonder that this caused prompted today’s little lesson – #tdil how the dual screen monitor works in a range rover.Β 

for those who are unfamiliar with this mental feature, it allows the passenger and driver to see different things on the same screen at the same time – for example, the driver would see a full screen sat nav whilst the passenger is watching television … mad, right?! want to see it in action? you can –>here<–

it’s actually pretty cool how this technology works. named ‘parallax barrier technology’, this patented tech from land rover to alternatively hide and reveal columns of pixels depending on which perspective you are looking at the screen – driver or passenger.

a parallax barrier is actually a layer consisting of lots of small slits that is placed over the lcd screen. this is what separates the two images that are being played simultaneously.

that actually makes it sound really simple … but from what i can find, there’s not much else on it (and i’m super tired, so not much else is going in!) πŸ™ˆ

but yeah, it’s a super awesome piece of tech that i think all cars should have! also, i now think that all cars should have a tv … watching tv, in a heated seat, whilst some people wash your car for you is just ace πŸ‘πŸ»

anyway, night night πŸ™ƒ
