Nintendo took the wraps of the Nintendo 3DS yesterday at the E3 2010.
The Nintendo 3DS features a 3.53-inch top 3D screen and a 3.02-inch bottom touch screen. Nintendo did not reveal what technology is behind the 3D display of the 3DS. The screen is using autosteroe technology which does not require glasses to see the 3D effect.

There is one company that has been unveiling small stereoscopic displays: Sharp. Just in April Sharp unveiled a 3D touchscreen display, that apparently Nintendo is not using in the 3DS as only the bottom 2D screen is touch enabled.
But Sharp also makes a 3D display without touch. Sharp is also the display provider of the DS and DSi. TechOn points out that Sharp also offers a stereoscopic camera module. Nintendo is likely to source both the 3D screen and the camera module from Sharp for the 3DS.
More details about the Nintendo 3DS can be found here.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
