HItachi's latest screen—something that may pop up in future phones and other portable devices—combines everything you'd ever want (and didn't want) in one display. Meaning glasses-less 3D, 4.5 inch IPS-based LCD and a stunning 1280x720 resolution.
The Nintendo 3DS is pretty great. A solid enough 3D screen with no goofy glasses. We need more stuff like that if 3D is going to take over our living room. And MIT agrees, but they think they got an even better way to push out glasses-free 3D.
It seems like 3D is everywhere. Movies, living rooms. Even real life is 3D! But how does it all work?
A few months back I tried out a glasses-less 3D prototype from Sharp, where the cameraphone took "3D" photos and made them pop out in their parallax barrier screens. That tech's now in two Android phones—for Japan, anyway.
Glasses-less 3DTV sounds like the greatest invention ever, right? But secretly, I think we were all worried it would look quite rubbish. After a lengthy session with Sharp's parallax barrier technology, I can say chin up! It's not that bad.
Electronics manufacturer Sharp has been working on some new 3.4-inch, 480 x 854 pixel parallax barrier displays. Such displays allow you to view 3D images without needing to wear goofy glasses and happen to be perfect for the 3DS.
Last week, CNN's attempt to display the future of TV news ended up making 3D look like the gimmick that it is. Yep, 3D is a gimmick, most associated (outside of CNN) with those stupid glasses designed to fit Blockheads from Venus. But as you know, there are many different scientific approaches dedicated to tricking…
