Nothing puts the brakes on 3D excitement like opening up your 3D gadget and realizing that there just isn’t enough content to make it worthwhile. However, this paradigm, which many had begun getting used to, is changing thanks to companies like LG. The Optimus 3D will have a software update that helps users convert their 2D content. Due out in October, it will take any game from OpenGL and add the third dimension.
Fifty games will have pre-optimized settings available, and you’ll be able to alter the rest through a settings menu. The application will take anything you load into the unit and immediately try to split it. By taking the foreground and separating it from the background, they will come back together in a 3D rendition. If you don’t like the 3D effects, you won’t be disappointed to learn that you can still play everything in 2D.
LG is continuing to push the envelope with 3D technology. Already a pillar in the 3D TV market, improving the Optimus 3D is in the company’s best interest. Don’t get me wrong, the device is killer, but when you start giving it the ability to create 3D content without having it look horrible, you’re really making headway toward my heart. We’ll see how the update looks when we get it on our hands, but for now, just rest easy knowing that more 3D content is on the way…you can thank LG for that…
