51421Hand/head held 3D viewers
- Sep 1, 2011Hello Group,
There are many systems to view 3D images, f.e. with anaglyph glasses, active
shutterglasses, passive polarized glasses and other systems.
One of the most wel known is the old skool View-Master from decades ago, if
you are aged 30+ then there is a good chance that you have experiences
yourself with the plastic viewer and the carton disc holding 7 left and 7
right eye dia positive slides and if so I am sure that you remember how real
and crisp the images could be.
Based on the same method Hasbro released a couple of month ago a viewer for
use with the iPhone on the iPhone are a left and a right eye image displayed
and with good content the experience is just the same and just as crispy as
with the "Master".
On the last PanTools Meeting in Vienna I demonstrated the new Hasbro my3D
viewer with some of my parallel displayed 3D Pano2VR HTmlCss3 panos (moved
by the gyros of the iPhone4) and I got the impression that people liked it a
lot and had no problem viewing the panos.
To get an idea here how it looks here is an example of a 3D side-by-side
pano for display with the Hasbro viewer.
Without the viewer you try on iPhone 4 the moving of the pano with the gyros
and on other devices, desktops included, you can move the left pano with
mouse or finger and then the right pano will follow smoothly.
Btw, with the staring method perhaps you can see the 3D depth without the
Yesterday Sony launched a much more advanced system based on the same
method, a slick looking head device with build in display.
I am curious if the Sony head display is just a gimmick or a device that
will be just as popular as the View-Master, I guess time will tell.
