i3DG Puts 3D Video On Your iPhone & iPod Touch

Getting 3D video playback on your iPhone or iPod touch could be as old-school simple as tilting a mirror at an angle. And that appears to be what media artist Jitsuro Mase has done, employing three half-silvered mirrors to create the illusion of 3D display.

Bringing 3D minus the clunky 3D eyewear to the handset ahead of other phone makers, the i3DG Palm Top Theater is a small box-shaped accessory that plugs in to an iPhone or iPod touch for playback. It claims to be capable of supporting a gamut of applications from 3D videos to accelerometer-based games.

And there won't be a shortage of potential 3D content, unlike with TV, since anyone can use video-editing software such as Final Cut, Flash, Premier, After Effects and MaxMSP/Jitter to produce the 960 × 640 format required. As an upcoming showcase of these works, a Palm Top Theater mobile 3D exhibition will reportedly run from late January to early February under the International Film Festival Rotterdam. Catch the video below to see how it works.
