If you thought 3D can only be on IMAX and HDTVs, then think again. Japanese electronics giant Sharp recently unveiled 3D display for hand-held devices. This display will likely make its way to various mobile devices. The screen size is 3.4 inch and is reported to have a contrast ratio of 1,000:1 and a brightness of 500 cd/m2. Even the resolution is very impressive at 854×480.
“Sharp Corporation has developed a 3D touchscreen LCD featuring the industry’s highest brightness that can switch between 2D and 3D modes. Users can view 3D images without the need to wear special glasses, making this LCD ideal for mobile devices such as digital cameras, mobile phones, and smartphones.” The screen is so impressive that most viewers believe that it can easily compete with the 3D displays from Sony and Panasonic, that require 3D Shutter glasses.
