We all know just how 3D movies made quite a buzz a few years ago when Avatar hit the silver screen. The thing is, there were not too many 3D movies after that which really managed to capture the rapt attention of the audience, and it has become a gimmick rather than a necessity. The Nintendo 3DS too, tried to ride on the 3D bandwagon where portable gaming is concerned, but it has not really taken off in a big way to make it a “must have” item despite the fact that you do not need to wear a pair of 3D glasses when playing. Here is the $349.95 No Glasses 3D Tablet, where as its name suggests, intends to take a stab at the glassless 3D market, coming in the form of a tablet.
How is that made possible? Well, it relies on a parallax barrier that has been laid atop its 8″ LCD display, so that each eye would receive a slightly different set of pixels, resulting in a depth of field sans the sometimes uncomfortable, color-distorting lenses. It will run on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, and you will be able to enjoy Full HD resolution on it. There is also Bluetooth connectivity, a 2-megapixel shooter at the back and a VGA camera in front thrown in for good measure. I do wonder about the battery life, however, and does it come with a feature like the Nintendo 3DS which allows us to turn off the 3D capability to extend battery life? [Press Release]
