    Default Next iPod Touch May Feature Glasses-Free 3D


    A report from Japanese blog Macotakara states that according to their sources, Apple is toying with the idea of adding glasses-free 3D technology to the next generation iPod touch. The iPod touch would be a direct pocket-gaming competitor to Nintendo's upcoming 3DS.

    This report comes after a multitude of 3D related patents that Apple has been granted over the past few years. MacStories, discussing the report, writes that Apple would integrate the 3D technology "without any external peripheral or accessory."

    It appears that the 3D screens would be supplied by Sharp, who is currently developing small, glasses-free LCD screens that could theoretically be used as the screen for a future iPod. Macotakara writes that the company is currently preparing to manufacture the screens.

    Although strictly a rumor at this point, a move towards glasses-free 3D does make relative sense for Apple, particularly on the iPod touch, as it continues to compete for pocket-gaming supremacy. This would be considered a technological feat for Apple, but I suspect that the company will wait and make sure the glasses-free technology is truly ready for prime time, and does not sacrifice any current functionality, before it is used in the iPod touch or any Apple device.

    I doubt it will be competing with the Nintendo 3DS in terms of gaming.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    This would be so awesome to have! I predict in the future- iPhone 6 or 7 will have this technology. I'm laying it out there right now.

    If iPhone 5 doesn't have this and the new iPod Touch does I might just opt for an 8gb model of it!

    I agree although I'm not sick of 3D I would love the option to turn it on or off

    It's glasses free 3D technology

    Any impressions I've read about the upcoming Nintendo 3DS have said that the 3D is actually very very good. Surprisingly good. And the 3DS has the option to turn on or off the 3D effect at any moment.
    I don't want 3D on my iPhone just to play Cut the Rope for 5 mins in 3D. At least Apple is looking into copying other peoples ideas.
