"One of the many reasons 3D TVs failed was that the technology required viewers to wear special glasses to actually see the simulated depth effect. The only glasses-free 3D product that can be considered a success was the Nintendo 3DS. Instead of forcing drivers to wrangle 3D glasses, Mercedes-Benz is using similar 3D screen technology to what Nintendo went with. The driver’s instrument panel is a “conventional LCD display with a special pixel structure” paired with an LCD grill that ensures each of the driver’s eyes sees a different image from the LCD display. Like with the upgraded version of the 3DS, a camera tracks the position of the driver’s eyes and head and automatically adjusts the LCD panels so that the depth effect isn’t limited to a specific sweet spot."

The effect can be disabled.

The article doesn't mention it but I believe this is the Lit by Leia technology, the developers of the screen for the Red Hydrogen One. They are releasing a 10" tablet with the same format glasses-free screen.
