MacBook Pro Retina 3D: Glasses Free 3D for Mac
During the Flat Panel Display show 2012 held in Tokyo, Dimenco (Veldhoven, The Netherlands) exhibited a fully functional MacBook Pro Retina 3D. The display makes use of the lenticular technology, which permanently attaches a lens on top of the screen with a thickness less than 3mm. This technology allows the viewer to perceive perfect stereoscopic 3D images without the use of any clumsy eyewear.
New Autostereoscopic Media Players from NAV-3
Last month at the PDN Photo Plus International Expo, NAV-3D (Hoboken, NJ, USA) introduced a unique line of innovative 3D stereoscopic multimedia entertainment devices, including no-glasses 3D media players, cameras, and camcorders. Those in attendance participated in hands-on demonstrations and interactive film sessions, as you can watch in the video here under.
HMZ-T2, the Personal 3D Viewer from Sony
Far better than the first incarnation of its 3D helmet, the HMZ-T2 from Sony features two HD Oled displays but weights only 330 grams. And, of course, there is no crosstalk at all as the two screens are fully independent.
Watch movies as the director intended them. With '24P True Cinema', you can enjoy film-like motion, identical to being in a real movie theatre - exactly the way it should be. Once you try it, you'll never want to watch movies on anything else.
Oculus Rift 3D VR Headset will be Manufactured
The Oculus Rift VR Headset is the cutting edge of virtual reality for video games. It will be developed with funding from Kicktarter.
The virtual reality headset is designed specifically for video games, featuring stereoscopic 3D and a wide 110 degree field of view. Existing headset displays typically offer a 40 degree field of view, replicating a screen in front of the user. A 110 degree view gives the appearance of surrounding the user's natural field of view through two 640x800 screens. The Oculus Rift features low latency head tracking so that what appears on the display accurately mimics the motions of the head.
Doom 3 BFG Edition was the first title to commit to supporting the device with their game, and it was revealed only a few days ago that Meteor Entertainment and their upcoming free-to-play shooter, HAWKEN, also agreed to support the Oculus Rift.
