iPad 3 To Feature 3D Display?

by on May 4th, 2011

A report from RCR Wireless indicates that Apple may be planning to introduce 3D technology into the display of its next generation iPad.

Apple has mostly stayed out of the 3D game (except for a handful of patents that never materialized into products). The majority of the 3D focus has been from various television manufacturers.

“The fact that the iPad 3 is 3D is a dead cert,” one Hollywood insider close to the big movie studios told RCR, adding that the screen would be the real magic. She went on to say that the big film studios were currently running around like blue arsed flies trying to gear up to release plenty of 3D content in time for Apple’s next launch.

The sources of the report are this mysterious “Hollywood insider” and various sources from Foxconn, an iPad manufacturer. If Apple were to use 3D technology in the iPad 3, the LCD would have to be a glasses-free display, as iPad users are definitely not going to be wearing 3D glasses to use their device!

What do you think though? Will Apple introduce 3D tech in the next iPad? It could be pretty great for gaming!

    I have a Neurological issue with my eyes, Prevents me from seeing with both at the same time for proper depth perception (not joking) So 3D doesn’t work for me, never has.
    So as selfish as this is, I hope Apple stays out of the 3D game and 3D gets phased out lol although I highly doubt it will. 😛

    I agree with you.

    I feel 3D is a fad.

    I don’t mind 3D. I wouldn’t go out of my way to see programming with it. If the iPad 3 does have it, great. But if the price is increased because of it, not so great and they should leave it out.

    Quick question regarding Zagg advertising. It indicates “free shipping”. Does that apply to Canada also? There web site indicates lower 48 states.

    I *think* it will use the iPad’s gyroscope, front camera and sensors to do something like in this old 2007 video:


    You wouldn’t need any special glasses or hardware and the 3D result is really amazing.
