The iPad 2 is capable of glasses-free 3D

iPad 2 3D

Who would’ve thought that we’d see glasses-free3D on the iPad 2? Well thanks to some researchers at France’s Engineering Human-Computer Interaction Research Group (EHCI), they’ve found a way to recreate the whole glasses-free 3D experience. The researchers developed a hack called the Head-Coupling Perspective which takes advantage of the iPad 2’s camera to track the position and movement of the tablet user’s head and adjusts the image onscreen accordingly. With this technology, they were able to recreate the 3D effect of looking into a box with objects in it. Instead of objects popping out at you like regular 3D, we see things going inwards instead. Words aren’t going to do justice to how amazing it looks, so hit the break to check out a video demonstration:
