LG were showing off their latest flagship passive 3DTV at IFA over the weekend, the LG LW980T. A Nano Full LED passive 3D display, it’s got a few unexpected tricks up its sleeve.

The super slim 26.4mm-thick TV has plenty of connected content, including a 3D VOD app, BBC iPlayer, Facebook and Blinkbox, and comes with 7 pairs of passive specs.

However, the most interesting feature is Dual Play:

Much like the PS3 monitor revealed earlier in the year, it allows two gamers to share the same screen and still have a full screen experience in 2-player multiplayer modes. By using a two dedicated pairs of glasses (one with two right lenses, one with two left) the screen is able to shut off alternate frames in compatible games to give each player a massive display, and stop cheating in the likes of split-screen Call of Duty.

Set for a September release you’re looking at £1799 for the 47in model and £2499 for the 55 incher.
