Wazabee will be introducing several ‘autostereoscopic’ products at Macworld that add no-glasses 3D technology to regular LCDs, including the iPhone. The 3DeeShell hugs the iPhone like a protective case, and features a clear “3D” lens that you can remove when you’re not using it.
Of course the case can’t magically convert 2D to 3D, but the company is offering a trio of apps to create and view media for the display, named 3DeeVUsion, 3Dee!oadr and 3DeeCamera. The Wazabee 3DeeShell is scheduled to ship in early Q2 2009.
• For iPod Touch users, 3DeeVUsion makes it possible to view three-dimensional content and create their own content as well by taking advantage of the device’s simple touchpad operation.
• With the 3Dee!oadr Web application, users have access to a stock of more than 500,000 3D images thanks to a connection to Yahoo Flickr! image services. The software also enables users to upload their own 3D images and share them with friends.
• With the 3DeeCamera, users can generate stereoscopic pictures in a matter of seconds using mobile software and a native iPhone camera. Various viewing modes mean that the pictures can be viewed with or without 3D glasses.
How this will take off is anyone’s guess. It’s not something that people will want to view all day, but then again 3D is awesome isn’t it? Wazabee will also be releasing a similar device for 13.3-inch laptops and a standalone 19-inch 3D gaming monitor at Macworld.3D, 3DeeShell, iPhone, laptop, screen, Wazabee
