This Week’s Featured Link:
New technology is currently being developed that will allow for 3D projection on mobile devices such as the iPad and iPhone–without 3D glasses!
The French company Head-Coupled Interactive has developed technology that uses the front-facing camera on a mobile device to create this type of display! The position of the person’s head is all that the technology needs in order to adjust the 3D image’s perspective. If successful, this technology could entirely change the way that we see things in 3D and add a fun new element to developing media.
