Experimental 3D User Interface on iPad 2 (video)

3D has been the flavor of the month for about……well….a year.  While devices like the EVO 3D and LG Thrill will bring 3D displays to U.S. smartphones in the near future, glasses-free 3D display technology involved with these small screens is not exactly a brain-busting user experience yet.  The quality suffers greatly due to the size of these screens and the current technology in place. Multi-thousand dollar 3D TVs still aren’t terribly impressive either in terms of 3D quality.  While 3D gets ironed out, however, 3D-like experiences facilitated by head-tracking technology provide a nifty UI effect that will likely become more popular moving forward. There are great head-tracking 3D demos from companies like The Astonishing Tribe, (now owned by RIM), and HTC’s Flyer will launch with a similar UI modification. Now, a group of researchers called the Engineering Human-Computer Interaction demonstrate head-tracking 3D effects the iPad 2.
