This may just look like your average cheap plastic iPhone 4 case, but under its Good and Plenty pink and black color scheme, this inexpensive add-on actually turns your iPhone 4 into a glasses-free 3D display.
We all know how cumbersome 3D glasses can be, and the holy grail of 3D is glasses-free tech. But that didn’t stop one guy from going completely the opposite direction. This 3D digital viewer not only requires that you look through lenspieces, but that you stoop over a wooden box to watch content.
LG unveiled the really slick Optimus 3D smartphone a while back. The smartphone needs no glasses to view 3D images and video. LG announced a few months back that it was working on a new converter that would turn a user’s 2D games into 3D on the fly for the phone.
Gaming devices like the PlayStation EyeToy, Nintendo 3DS, Microsoft’s Kinect and the upcoming PS Vita are all presenting ways of bringing virtual characters into real world environments. But a research group at Keio University is working on a more uncanny technology.
I have always been fascinated by papercraft. Over time, we’ve seen papercraft art that not’s only good to look at, but also functional, too (think papercraft Leica, people.) Here’s another one for the books, only this time, it’s for your eyes only.
Sony just announced their first head-mounted display using OLED panels. The HMZ-T1 also offer full support for 3D movies and gaming. At just 0.7″, the OLED screens are tiny,but at 1280×720 each, they have plenty of resolution for their size.
One of the first games I got hooked to on the PC was Solitaire. Our computer then ran on Windows ’95, with a wonderful CRT monitor that cost more than laptops do these days. I would try to finish the game as quickly as possible, and gaze proudly at the screen when the cards would go berserk and flying all over the screen when I won the game.
This is just what Dr. Mario ordered. More Hot Rod colors for the Nintendo 3DS. Okay, just one new color, but it’s a nice one: Flame Red. This new version of Nintendo’s latest hand held will arrive on September 9th, 2011.
Yet another post brought to you by the magic powers of Kinect. Using Microsoft’s wonder device along with other cheap materials, A.J. Jeromin built a set up that can easily and quickly scan and render any object in 3D.
If you thought that those Vuzix augmented reality glasses were hot, check out these new ones, which let you take a 3D-capable big screen with you everywhere you go. Yep, 3D isn’t so hot anymore, but I’ve always wanted goggles like these anyhow – especially for long trips.
Unlike most of Tokyoflash’s watches, the new Kisai 3D Unlimited is actually pretty easy to read. The numbers are displayed anti-clockwise in a sort of isometric 3D perspective, with the hours at the top. It takes a brief second to get the hang of it, then it all makes perfect sense.
If you have a PS3 and you would like to be able to play 3D games and watch 3D Blu-ray flicks, but you don’t want to upgrade to a 3D TV costing thousands of dollars, Sony has a good alternative, the PlayStation 3D Monitor Kit, announced at E3 earlier this year.
3D printing has been used in a variety of different ways, but this is the first time that I’ve seen it being used to print out a whole airplane. UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) are pretty important in the military these days, and even on science missions.
About six months ago I installed a home theater in my game room upstairs. I used a big 120-inch screen and a projector. At first, I wanted a projector that could do 3D, but the choices were very limited and since I would be using it for 2D movies more than anything, I wanted 1080p resolution too and there were mostly only 720p 3D offerings at the time.
