Nintendo To Have First 3D System?

There have been many rumors lately about the Nintendo 3DS, and its inclusion of a 3D screen that won’t require glasses.  Now that’s what I’m talking about!  You can always count on the Japanese pushing the technology envelope.  Now it’s not confirmed what type of technology the 3DS will use, but I guess Sharp may have something to do with it.

I guess Sharp has created ‘parallax barrier technology’ that allows three dimensions without the assistance of 3d glasses.  It uses [slider title=”vertical slits”]Ha Ha, vertical slits!  Yeah it’s one of those days.[/slider] on the LCD screen to direct light to each side of the brain via your eyeballs.  Don’t ask me how that works it just does.  Early feedback on the Sharp technology is positive, but scarce, so I’ll keep my eye out for any updates.  This makes you wonder if the next version of the iPad will have similar 3D capabilities.  Knowing Apple I’m sure they’re skipping right to 4D and portals to alternate dimensions.

You’ve been enlightened…
