Motorola is not the only company working on developing 3D display technology for mobile phones. Japanese electronics manufacturer Sharp has revealed that the company is working on a special LCD screen that can bring 3D display to the mobile phone handsets. With this display, users may be able to view 3D graphics on their mobile phones without the need to wear special 3D glasses.
However, the technology is not at its best as yet. According to a report on ComputerWorld, the 3D rendering will happen only when the screen is viewed at an appropriate angle and distance. The report notes,
“To get the 3D illusion viewers must hold the screen about 30 centimeters in front of them — about the same distance at which a cell phone or digital camera is typically held. If they get the angle right, they will see an image that appears to have depth; if they get it wrong they will see a blurred image that’s difficult to decipher.”
However, users may be offered an easy way to switch between 3D and 2D display which should make it much more useful.[via ComputerWorld]
