Mobile 3D is on the way

So, we've now got solid, solid products in the world of 3D TV, 3D cameras, and 3D computers. The next place for industry-wide adoption is in the mobile space, and a company called Movidius has just launched what it thinks will be the solution to that.

The company has launched a new platform called Myriad 3D today. Movidius calls it "the world's first out-of-the-box HD 3D platform for mobile devices, with a range of unique 3D features enabling a whole new level of 3D experience for users."

The mobile market is obviously a very different animal. People aren't going to wear 3D glasses when they use their phone. And to replace mobile displays to get everyone to adopt to the same kind of technology would create a massive headache.

So the industry is turning to sophisticated software solutions. Movidius's package allows graphics to appear as though they have depth, on existing mobile display technology, though the end result is still somewhat limited.

If the market of autostereoscopic 3D, glasses-free 3D technology that's currently being used in 3D photo frames and Nintendo's 3DS system, takes off then mobile phones would be the next big logical step for a hardware overhaul.

But for now, companies like Movidius are doing all they can to bring the 3D mania to mobile phones. Check out a video of Movidius technology below:
