A prototype of the world’s first glasses-free 3D tablet went on display at CTIA Wireless 2012 convention in New Orleans this week.
The prototype, which was developed by Qualcomm, features auto stereoscopic 3D (similar to the Nintendo 3DS) and contains a Snapdragon S4 mobile processor.
This feature allows 1080p HD 3D feedback as well as real time 2D to 3D conversion. The purpose of the tablet was to show off the capabilities of the Snapdragon S4 chip and its processor.
The tablet can also capture stereoscopic 3D video and images, or convert 2D images into 3D in real time.
Not only can it do this with video it can also convert games into 3D in real time.
The technology used in Qualcomm’s tab is different to the one used in its main rival’s tablet, the LG Optimus Pad 3D, thanks to a special glass layer that enables the full depth of 3D on the screen.
The prototype seemed to be a surprise to some people that were there, and has shown visitors of the convention what they can expect from 3D and tablet PCs in the near future.
