Spatial View, a leader in manufacturing products for creating 3D effects, introduces its latest product, Wazabee 3DeeShell, a special protective skin with an integrated removable lens that can display 3D content on the Apple iPhone. The Wazabee 3DeeShell is tentatively scheduled to ship in early Q2 2009.

The Wazabee 3DeeShell uniquely depicts 3D content such as games, pictures and videos on the Apple iPhone in an extraordinarily realistic way. The housing contains a lens that eliminates the need for special 3D glasses, while serving as a stylish protective skin at the same time. The lens can easily be removed at any time in order to switch back and forth between normal 2D and spellbinding 3D graphics.
Wazabee has also developed three software applications, currently available for download from
the iPhone App Store, that enable users to access existing 3D content as well as create their own: 3DeeVUsion, 3Dee!oadr and 3DeeCamera.
- 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.

Regular readers will have seen me post about 3D before now – and this is another nice take on how to generate the effect. For right now, in-built screen are not appearing in devices, so the retro-fit approach, particularly one that includes a case for the iPhone, is a really neat idea!
