LG Shows New Prototypes Including "Tweet TV" and Glasses-Free 3D

Tweet TV relies on an Android smartphone with a digital TV receiver.

LG has come up with some interesting new mobile television prototypes that they hope will help to pave the way for more mobile sets.

Perhaps the most interesting is the first mobile TV that displays 3D images broadcast on the ATSC Mobile DTV standard. The exciting bit, of course, is that it gives you 3D without the need for 3D glasses - an essential for a small device like this.

The second offering doesn't generate quite the same feeling of excitement. It's called Tweet-TV and it's an application that allows users to both read and write Twitter messages while they're watching a show. Tweets will be displayed in a transparent panel over part of the screen.

LG sees this as an opportunity to get people involved in shows and share their thoughts with other fans.
