    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wB6K14ZaWvM&feature=player_embedded]YouTube - 3DBoard - Glasses Free 3D EFFECT for SpringBoard[/ame]

    Word is buzzing around on the interweb (that's that thing connected by a bunch of tubes, right?) about a new tweak coming to your iOS 4.0+ iDevice in the near future.

    Apocalipse, the developer of 3DBoard, released the above video demonstrating the effect. While it's hard to really grasp a good feel for what this might look like, I'm hoping to get my hands on a copy and give you guys a closer look. It might be one of those things where it only looks right with the naked eye.

    Nonetheless, I'm rather excited to see how this tweak preforms. Find it soon (no ETA) in Cydia rumored to be $4. (Sorry no freebie here)

      Ok time to do some answering :P Sorry i'd have posted sooner but my power was out for 24 hours due to a winter storm.

      Ok firstly, right now its only using the accelerometer, so it'll work on all devices 4.0+. I will add compass + gyro support so it will take advantage of the improved motion sensing in devices with them.
      It's a SpringBoard tweek using MobileSubstrate, so it will work just fine with any themes, right now the only thing its NOT compatible with is Parallax, but i'm working on that.
      As for depth, that will be adjustable.
      For the guy who said he doesnt want it on activator, well it will have an activator toggle, but you can just leave it enabled if you want....nobody's making you disable it (and unlike graviboard, it doesnt impede functionality, so disabling it isnt overly necessary to use apps)
      As for battery drain, its not so bad, like i said my power's been out 24 hours, i've been wathcing netflix and youtube, tweeting, etc, my battery has held up just fine, played videos for a good 8 hours before i had to plug it into the car. Also, I'm pretty good with detecting battery drain, my other app BatteryDetective was written to help with that :P.
      Should be out in the next week or two, I'm busy recouping everything @ home and work from this winter storm, but this will get required attention

      Anyhow, any other questions feel free to ask here, or i'm on twitter @apocolipse269

      Will this only work with devices with a gyro?

      This is on Cydia now... i'm waiting to hear if it works with themed icons.

      It should work with custom themed icon, I'm using the Classica 3 icons...

      but it kinda it looks like the wallpaper is the one that's moving, not the icons, is it sort of an optical illusion? I also often crash while changing the depth or even enabling/disabling 3dBoard.

      Also guys, this looks better if you don't have icon shadows disabled, i had them disabled for iBlanks and it just looked odd without their shadows.

      Also after respringing it won't immediately work, I have to go into 3DBoards settings to fiddle with the depth again to get it to work.

      I've had no luck with it so far, running TekSe7en theme, with barrel and FolderEnhancer.

      It does the exact same thing as "DeepEnd" which I tried earlier and deleted. Neither of them make my theme look 3D. All it does is super zoom my wallpaper (which looks like crap) and then the wallpaper wiggles around behind the icons.

      I dont suggest wasting $3 on this or using Ryan Petrich's FREE DeepEnd unless you're using all stock icons (or stock shaped icons) with the stock shadows etc, just like the video demo shows.

      Having fun running both DeepEnd and 3DBoard together. I wasn't really expecting icons come flying off the screen or anything, just a subtle effect. Anyways...

      iPhone 3GS running the iNCEPTION theme.... 3DBoard doesn't work for me inspite of having the depth level on maximum and umpteen reboots and resprings.

      Tried on my iPad (running 4.2.1)... no go on that either! BLAH!
