For those shopping around for a 3D monitor, LG has recently unveiled their DX2500 series glasses free 3D monitor in South Korea. Customers will be able to choose from either a 20” monitor or a 24” monitor although apart from its size, they both appear to have the same technology built into them which is the parallax barrier 3D technology which is supposedly good enough for the company to earn […]
Japan sure does get quite a few cool smartphones, although hopefully this particular model by Sharp could be making its way stateside if its FCC filing is any indication. We had previously reported on the Sharp Aquos SH-01D Android smartphone and how it was spotted in an FCC filing, but in a press release by NTT DoCoMo today, it looks like the phone will be headed to Japan first before […]
A recent FCC filing has revealed that the Sharp Aquos SH-01D may be headed our way soon. The device was originally announced in Japan, and half the time those phones never make it stateside, which is kind of a pity since some of Japan’s smartphone offerings are usually on the more interesting side.
Sharp sure is on a roll with new Android devices lately. The company has just introduced a new handset to its AQUOS PHONE lineup. Called the AQUOS PHONE 102SH, this sleek looking phone was recently introduced in Japan and will be carried by SoftBank, so it probably won’t make its way to the US – at least not anytime soon, but it packs specs and looks similar to the AQUOS […]
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 […]
The glasses-free 3D movement has certainly picked up to a certain extent, what with stereoscopic 3D capable phones and the Nintendo 3DS having hit the market for some time already. The novelty does wear thin rather quickly for some people though, and perhaps with better technology in the future, things might change and people could very well soften their stance and start to see 3D as a need rather than […]
Are you interested in a laptop that will allow you to watch movies or play 3D games without the need for 3D glasses? If you are, Toshiba has recently unveiled the first 3D laptop that they claim does not require the need for special 3D glasses for watching movies or for playing 3D games. The laptop in question is the Qosmio F750, and it is said to go on sale next […]
Interested in getting your hands on a portable media player (PMP) for a relatively inexpensive price of $179? Well, it looks like you can, thanks to Gadmei’s P83 PMP, which coincidentally is priced at $179. So what exactly is it about the Gadmei P83 that would make you want to get your hands on it? Well for starters, it features an 8-inch display with a 1280×768 resolution and with the […]
Toshiba has just unveiled the “dynabook Qosmio T851/D8CR” – the world’s first glasses-free 3D notebook PC that can display 2D and 3D at the same time. This means that users will be able to do stuff like play their favorite 3D games or watch 3D videos in one window, while checking emails or reading the news in another window at the same time.
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 […]
At the Games Developer Conference (GDC 2011) this week, Nintendo showed off what their top-selling Wii console was capable of. Running a special version of Mario Kart Wii on the Wii, Nintendo’s Producer, Hideki Konno gave a demonstration showing that their 4 year old + console could be used to display 3D content on a glasses-free 3D TV. It sure looks like Nintendo is really pushing forward the 3D revolution, […]
[MWC] LG’s first 3D phone, the LG Optimus 3D will make its debut this weekend at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. The world’s first full 3D experience phone will give users the ability to view and create 3D content that can be immediately viewed on the phone’s glasses-free 3D display. The phone packs a 1GHz OMAP 4 dual-core processor, a dual-lens camera that enables users to record content in […]
Who would’ve thought that glasses-free 3D wouldn’t do well in today’s world? Toshiba thought so too and felt the sting when they reported their lackluster sales for their TV sets that featured this technology. Apparently their best selling TV that featured glasses-free 3D only sold about 500 units in the whole of December – much less than half of what they hoped for. This could mean that the home consumer […]
3D technology is moving at a rather fast pace and even Apple is looking to get into the game. The fruity company has been granted a patent for a method of projecting a 3D image that can be perceived without the need for those pesky 3D glasses. With this system, each pixel would be projected onto a reflective, textured surface, which is then bounced into the viewer’s left and right […]
