Everyone at IFA was buzzing about 3D rumors, and Sony wasn’t going to let themselves get left out of the action. They announced that the Sony VAIO S notebook was getting a 3D overlay screen that will allow users to enjoy a glasses-free 3D experience, creating an interesting new “gadget” for those that are interested in experimenting with 3D technology. The screen is 3mm thick and will clip onto the 15.5-inch display, delivering great looking 3D for videos or pics without the use of specs. Now we’re talking…
We expect Sony to expand the technology to other devices, but for now, it seems that they want to experiment with the VAIO S series. Wondering about the viewing angles and how the 3D will look if you move? The webcam will have an app that tracks your head, giving a great 3D visual regardless of how you’re situated in front of your laptop. There are limitations, however, as you’ll want to be between 30CM and 1 meter of the screen.
This is great stuff as we expect to see a greater adoption rate of 3D technology. Nothing can initiate the trend like creating gadgets like this one that simply upgrade your existing equipment, allowing for a cheaper delve into the 3D craze.
