[Wireless Japan 2010] DoCoMo new 3D Glass-less LCD will put Sharp out of business.
Thought that Sharp’s 3D Glass-less LCD was cool? Well just wait to hear what’s DoCoMo has schedule for us for next year… Pretty much similar to what we have seen before, DoCoMo’s technology goes beyond what Sharp is offering today. Indeed, Sharp 3D monitor, the same one installed on the 3DS will work well only if you are perfectly in front of the monitor… If you move a few inches on the left or right your will immediately loose the 3D effect and will have to get back just in front of your monitor… Pretty annoying indeed while playing.
Now DoCoMo’s approach is pretty similar, but uses 8 Lenticular lens at the same time to give you perfect 3D rendering even if you are not perfectly in front of the monitor, and offer you around. Thanks to 4 of these lenticular lenses, DoCoMo is capable to give you a 30 degree view angle and perfect 3D within this view angle.
So far this works only if you are tilting your head horizontally, but DoCoMo is working on enhanced this technology to give a wider view angle and to be capable to get this on both axis (Vertical and Horizontal).
This Technology is still at the Concept level, but DoCoMo hope to release a device using this technology within a year or two. Also, the engineer who made the demo for us, underline that a 1GHz (Snapdragon) powered mobile phone with an integrated GPU will be enough to be able to use this 3D monitor and technology.
