The Nintendo 3DS brought "glasses-free" 3D technology to the forefront and now other companies are following suit. DXG is the latest to bring out a brand new portable media player that can present the depth of a 3D image or video to a human eye without the need for 3D glasses.
Just like the 3DS, it works with a series of intricate mirrors worked into the display itself to make it appear as though there is a level of depth to the screen.

Available exclusively at high-end novelty goods store Hammacher Schlemmer, the new display from DXG comes as part of a bundle with a new point-and-shoot 3D digital camcorder. The camera has a 3.2-inch LCD display, which can also display 3D images. 3D content recorded there can look even more spectacular on a 3D TV.

The reason that it works for things like the 3DS and portable video displays is that the cost is now affordable for small screens. Deploying the same kind of sophisticated technology to a large TV set, though, is still out of the question for most manufacturers, especially since there have been years of planning to set up the current stereoscopic 3D standard.

DXG's portable display is 7 inches, and can also play back 2D content without any distortion.

"DXG is excited to be at the forefront of the 3D digital content revolution and release a product that allows people to easily create their own 3D masterpieces We specifically designed our 3D camcorder and media player bundle with the consumer in mind to create an all-in-one, fun and easy way to record and watch life’s adventures in 3D," said the company in a statement.

The camera/display bundle is available now for $600.
