How does the future of 3D look like?

15 May

Last week we started our discussion about the future of 3D and we took 4D as an example.  However, it is not the only possible direction. Today we will see what else we can expect in the nearest future.

One such direction could be new applications of 3D. Now we watch 3D movies and cinema and use 3D TV but there are other possibilities exist.

For example, the next iPod Touch from Apple probably will use 3D technology. According to BoyGeniusReport, the iPod Touch will include glasses-free 3D and that gaming will be a main focus for the device. Apple awarded a patent for glasses-free 3D technology. As they say: “developers had created a way for its system to locate and trace users’ eyes, and then use the eyes’ position to render images on a textured screen that would merge to create a 3D visual”.

Furthermore, 3D isn’t restricted to computers or mobile phones. Fujifilm announced last year its twin lens, dual-CCD camera, the FinePix W1 3D with the possibility of 3D shooting. The set-apart lenses capture the same picture from slightly different angles.

Another possibility is the first 3D webcam which is already produced by Minoru.  To use this camera is very easy. You need to connect it your PC and then your friends and family will see you in 3D over Windows Live Messenger, Skype, AOL instant messenger, OoVoo and many other messaging programs.

Another direction of the 3D future can be related to the extension towards experience through 3D representation other than vision.

An example of this is a tactile behavioral illusion system. By combining 3D and tactile stimulation based on certain measurements, this system enables people to experience sensations that have not actually been triggered. Specifically, we can create an illusion related to bodily sensation, a feeling that a stationary object touching one’s hand is moving across the surface of that hand.

As we could see there are some possible direction of the 3D future and many opportunities. Interest and expectations for 3D are perfectly natural and will only increase because the desire to see remote things or to present them so that they could be seen is a fundamental trait in human beings. So it can be said that the future of 3D also seems linked, to some extent, to human potential.

    Hi Sasha,

    I think you have done a really great job with your post. You give a lot and different examples which in the case of topic like yours – 3D – is very important for the general understanding. What I think you can do to improve the outline is to maybe include some subheadings for the different parts, in order to create a better transition from one example to another. But as a whole I think your blog post is well structured, informative and understandable.

    Great Job!
