Soon you’ll be able to give your iPhone or iPod Touch the 3D treatment, using the Hasbro my3D alongside downloaded 3D apps (that are beginning to surface on the App Store). These will turn your apple devices into a 21st century Viewmaster.
All you do is slot your iPhone or iPod Touch into the back, then download some compatible apps. The Hasbro my3D then shows images from the apps side by side, creating a stereoscopic effect, and effectively adding a third dimension to your Apple device.
As well as spin-offs from Dreamworks’ animated films, there are plans for virtual travel apps as well as ‘experiences’ like scuba diving. With the promise of the app adjusting to whichever way you face, creating a 360 degree experience, it actually starts to sound quite enticing.
The Hasbro my3D will be on sale in the US next Spring for $30, there’s no word yet on a UK launch.
Personally I’m not sure the eye wear will catch on, imagine watching this on the tube, lol. However I don’t think the “real” 3D experience to be had on an iPhone is too far away, as there has been talk of applying similar technology that’s used in the Nintendo 3DS on the new iPhone 5, to give the next generation iPhone 3D capabilities. /exciting!!
