3D iPod touch in the works?
—Apple could be making a play into 3D. According to Kanteidan Blog, it’s claiming that Apple is ready to start building small 3D displays that may be included in the next-generation iPod touch.
The displays would not need special glasses to operate, and would instead rely on glasses-free 3D technologies like motion and head tracking in order to create a 3D effect. Kanteidan Blog speculates that gaming will be a major focus for the upcoming 3D technology making its way to the iPod touch. If true, Nintendo could face some stiff competition, which is expected to announce the U.S. launch of its Nintendo 3DS portable gaming console later this week.
Apple is known to have been exploring 3D technology for quite some time, and the company owns several patents that cover 3D. The rumor that Apple is ready to implement 3D into its upcoming devices is very speculative at this point.
