3D: the Marmite of the technology world. It’s very much a love/hate affair many of us share with 3D displays, but there’s at least one thing we can all agree on; the sooner we ditch the glasses, the better.
Those with a very specific sized laptop display (15.6 inches, to be exact), got a reasonably affordable way of upgrading their machines to offer glasses-free 3D visuals today.
A company called Spatial View have revealed the 3DeeScreen peripheral, a magnetized mounting frame that clips over the top of your existing laptop screen to turn in into a makeshift lenticular display, using a series of tiny mirrors to give the impression of depth to what you’re viewing. It’s pretty much the same principle employed in Nintendo’s 3DS handheld.
“Our goal is to provide a superior 3D viewing experience and enable existing laptops with 3D functionality at a reasonable price,” said Spatial View general manager Ihor Petelycky.
Priced at $129, Spatial View ship to the UK too, should your laptop be one of the few that fits with the add-on.
