A reinvestment in 3D technologies has led to modern successes in 3D films and sound and breakthroughs in stereoscopic television, but with 3Ms recent announcement of a sequential 3D optical film cell-phones, portable video game consoles and other hand-held electronics may be the next to get the 3D treatment.
The new technology, which will premiere at the Korea Electronics show next week, can allegedly be integrated into the backlight module of the device and only requires a single LCD screen operating at a 120Hz refresh rate - a model that Editor & Publisher magazine describes as "nearly identical to existing systems" already in production on assembly lines worldwide.
"Our 3D optical film solution is designed to enhance communication and interaction by providing an immersive, compelling visual 3D experience for mobile devices," declares 3M''s Optical Systems Division President
Jim Bauman in a press release announcing the product.
If proven a success, this new 3D film could stimulate the need for graphic designers and animators to produce content for the fledgling service.
