LG Electronics today revealed the 20-inch D2000, which it claims is the world's first glasses-free 3D monitor imbued with eye-tracking technology.

To maintain a stable 3D image from a variety of viewing angles, the monitor makes use of eye-tracking technology. A special camera sensor mounted on top of the monitor detects changes in the user's eye position in real time. As a result, the 3D content can only be viewed by one person at a time.

Although this is touted as the world's first glasses-free 3D monitor with eye-tracking technology, Toshiba has already introduced this feature in its Qosmio F750 gaming notebook .

The monitor also features 2D-to-3D conversion, similar to what 3D gaming laptops such as the Alienware M17x and the Toshiba Qosmio X770 offer. However, these laptops use active-shutter technology.

The D2000 will be available in Korea this month with a release in other markets planned for later this year.
