I don't care about multiple people; I'm a foreveralone and I'm the only one who ever watches my TV. There's never multiple people who need to watch my screen. And I'm not the only one. There are literally millions of us. We're a big market. And we're exactly the kind of people who like to piss away tons of money on the latest tech toys in order to distract us from our depression over not being able to find a mate.
Seems like this technology would be just fine for solo viewers. You'd think there'd be a place in the market for at least one model of TV using this technology. I guarantee you it would be especially popular in Japan among the NEET population. Glasses-free 3D waifus would be hugely popular.

I have had my device for many months and want to use the 3D on it but, gave up and mostly disable it.
That's funny, because I already addressed this. Nintendo has solved that problem with the New 3DS model released in Japan and Australia last month. A camera tracks your eyes and seamlessly adjusts the screen to compensate for you viewing off angle. The New 3DS's 3D tech is near perfect now.
You clearly haven't tried the New 3DS model yet. That's understandable, you're probably not Japanese or Australian. But I have a unit I imported and I can tell you it is a big improvement over the original model. This parallax 3D and camera eye tracking to compensate that Nintendo is using now is impressive stuff. The biggest tragedy is that it is paired with a low resolution handheld screen instead of a high resolution TV screen.
And the 3DS is unplayable with the 3D effect disabled. How do you guys stand that? It looks like hot garbage with the 3D disabled, because it cuts the screen's already pitifully low resolution in half.
