Earlier this year at MWC 2011 in February, we reported about the next generation in glasses-free stereoscopic 3D displays from MasterImage 3D. Well the company recently gave the folks at Venture Beat a demonstration of their latest displays who have reported back with pleasing reports. According to them MasterImage 3D’s working prototype of its “cell matrix parallax barrier” technology display works fantastically. It is said to leave Sharp’s glasses-free 3D display (found on the Nintendo 3DS) behind in the dust.
MasterImage 3D’s 4.3″ WVGA display prototype could show glasses-free 3D that didn’t get blurry when the user moves his/her head while watching the screen, and if the user’s head is too far to the side, the image transitioned into a 2D image instead of an unwatchable mess. According to MasterImage 3D, the technology used for its display is 500% more accurate than the one used in the 3DS. The company also mentioned that there haven’t been any issues with eye strain.
No word on when we’ll be seeing these displays used in our gadgets but we can’t wait for the day. Maybe Nintendo could use these displays for a 3DS refresh in the future?Related articles:
