Sharp brings no-glasses 3D screens to mobiles

After the eReaders and Tablets, 3D has been the talk of 2010 so far. Many companies showed off 3D televisions and monitors at the CES this year. Now, Sharp is bringing these 3D screens to portable devices like cellphones, digital cameras, MP3 players and others. This line of panels not only boast of being the smallest 3D panels but also support touch interface and need no glasses for the 3D experience.

The LCD screens use a parallax filter technology. The technology uses a series of vertical slits to send different light intensity to each eye, creating a 3D effect. The screens would twice as bright, double the resolution and offer ten times the contrast ratio of the conventional LCDs. The screens do have a few drawbacks too. The user must hold the screen 30 centimeters away and head-on to experience the 3D effect. Wrong angle or distance would project blurry image. But the good thing is that users always have the option to switch between 2D and 3D.

No details on any product featuring these 3D screens have been released by Sharp. The Nintendo DS uses Sharp’s technology in their 2D screens and the rumors of a 3D handheld gaming console (Nintendo 3DS) has been around for quite some time now. We would not be amazed if Nintendo’s gaming console becomes the first one to use Sharp’s no-glasses 3D screens.1
