We seem to remember this being an April Fools joke on one particular industry site this year, but that hasn’t – apparently – stopped this from becoming reality.
Yes, someone’s invented a lenticular overlay screen to fit over your regular iPhone (or whatever) screen that transforms so-called side-by-side visuals into 3D, although we can only assume the illusion is broken when you actually try to use the phone by – you know – touching it.
Yep, still, that’s glasses-free, albeit at the expense of a slightly wobbly display and the fact that it’s a third party application, so software will have to be specially designed to make the most of the tech.
The developers are promising a 120 degree field of view, though, which is considerable better than the three or four degree view the 3DS requires.
