3D movies in the palm of your hand (without glasses)

I thought this was an interesting new direction on the 3D video craze in this case done with your cell phone and it’s done without those clunky glasses. It’s called a i3DG and is an analog extension to an iPhone or an iPodTouch that converts its 2D display into a layered 3D view. It uses the technique of placing a half-silvered mirror at a 45-degree angle in front of an image that is created in three strips (seen below) so when it is projected it creates depth in the image. The advantage is that you don’t need any special equipment or techniques to create the 3D image – you only need the i3DG.
