The folks at KDDI have started showing off a new prototype LCD display targetted for use on mobile phones. The new display will be capable of showing 3D images. The display interlaces two images together… one image for the left eye, and one for the right. With the 2 images in a slightly different position, the stereoscoping LCD display tricks your eye into thinking there’s a real 3D image right in front of them. KDDI demonstrated a prototype at a resolution of 480×800.
Imagine watching that sunday night football game on your mobile device…. in 3D!? Cool! Something about this screams ‘Back to the Future‘ to me for some reason… Great Scott!
