We study theoretically the interaction between two species of bosons confined parabolically in one transverse direction but with a finite separation between the centers of the confining potentials. We demonstrate the existence of new types of confinement-induced Feshbach resonances that can be tuned by changing separation between the layers. They are much sharper than usual two-dimensional confinement-induced resonances, and can be observed in the shaking spectrum of the two-dimensional layers, as shown by detailed many-body calculations for a thermal Bose gas.
