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.

Sounds interesting unless it goes virtualboy road. That was horrible way of using the device.

$30 is a reasonable price point - no doubt it will be £30 here. Provided there is enough content this could be very popular. It looks like they are working on content but it's a chicken and egg situation. People won't make content unless it sells and it wont sell without content.
It will either be a great success or a total flop. Let's hope the content comes.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

You have got to be an complete idiot to use something that looks like binoculars to look at your phone. Come on, how stupid would that look.

Great idea. It won't be long until it's implemented in a way that benefits us all. It's the ideas like this that spark the solution for one that will satisfy us all in a way that's actually usuable.

Sounds cool but useful? Maybe depends on app development.
