I read an article yesterday that said a company (don't remember which, but it's in New Zealand)will be releasing a 3d lcd monitor. the reviewer said it looked like you could reach right in and grab something. No special hardware needed, it's 2 lcd screen sandwiched a certain distance apart.
What will they think of next :-))
Not really what you asked but interesting all the same.

I've just bought a few LCD screens, and I'm going to be buying some more, and I've learned a couple of things.

Brightness & Contrast
LCD screens are not as bright a video monitors. They are rated in nits, and you should get one rated no lower than 200. Contrast can help with that and you should lokk for higher contrast, 300:1.

Resolution
The resolution can vary greatly on these. I had several old PC's running at 640x480. The 10 year old monitors would go no higher. The LCD would go no lower tha 800x600. When i plugged them in, they wouldn't work. I had to spend half a day swapping monitors and updating video drivers before anything would work. Also, many LCD work best at one resolution, say 1024x768. Going higher or lower can produce a grainy or blured image. Look you a review on one that has been tested at different resolutions.
