A method for implementing a three dimensional (3D) user interface, comprising: locating a first direction for viewing a first 3D scene; producing a first 3D image of the first 3D scene; displaying the first 3D image of the first 3D scene to the first direction; locating a second direction, different from the first direction, for viewing the 3D scene; producing a second 3D image of the first 3D scene; and displaying the second 3D image of the first 3D scene to the second direction; wherein the second 3D image is produced so the first 3D scene appears from the second direction at same coordinates in space and same direction in space as the first 3D scene appears from the first direction.
