  • 3D Coming to iPhone with Hasbroís My3D Device


    Hasbro is working with Apple to develop a peripheral that allows 3D images to be viewable on an iPhone or iPod Touch. The My3D peripheral will allow users the ability to view content in 3D and offers them a unique 360-degree field of view. It resembles a pair of binoculars and has a slot for an iPhone or iPod Touch. Starting next spring, it will be available for $30 wherever Apple accessories are sold.

    Hasbro is working to develop 3D apps that will offer users a unique experience not previously available. Currently, there are several categories of apps being explored including: gaming apps, travel apps and entertainment apps. Hasbro has partnered with Dreamworks Animation to develop material for the device. Megamind will most likely be the first of many titles to get a movie tie-in gaming app.

    Hasbro worked closely with Apple on this project and hopes other developers will make good use of the device. With more than 125 million iPhone and iPod Touch users worldwide, Hasbro hopes the My3D accessory will catch on in a big way. My3D is sure to help Apple maintain its popularity as a gaming device. With Nintendo set to launch their 3DS handheld gaming system next year, My3D should help Apple stay competitive in the 3D gaming arena. My3D is an intriguing device, but itís unclear at the moment just how gamers are supposed to use the device and have access to the touch screen during game play. Letís hope My3D isnít the next Nintendo VirtualBoy.

      Not on edge, was pointing out the flawed logic. Everyone likes to think that corporations are making a load of money from nothing. It takes money to make money, and people should be aware of this.

      Nobody asks how the product gets to Walmart, they just get mad when it's not there, or that it costs a certain amount.

      Hasbro might see $1.60 on each one of these after costs, and that's only if they sell a certain number of them. If more people understand the process, then it will be easier to fight anti-American production policies like N.A.F.T.A... Which is the real reason for our massive economic decline over the last decade. That's not an emotional opinion either, it's an analytical opinion.

      I'll stop before it does get heated, but please be aware that I wasn't trying to be snappy, snarky, on edge, or emotional... Just real.

      On the usability side... I am curious how you'd control it as well, maybe voice commands and gyros in the mask to detect movement of your head?

      couldn't agree with you more!

      can you imagine wearing those retarded binoculars in public while gaming. I'm sure the ladies will find that totally hot.

      Now this is a comment I disagree with. I can't see it not being one or the other. If it doesn't take off then no one will write software for it so it will fail. There is no middle rod.

      For all the people that think they will make you look an idiot and wont attract the ladies, I'm sure you get up to other things in the privacy of your own bedroom that would put the ladies off far more....
