Mirror Gadget Turns iPhone into a Handheld 3D Theater

created at: 11/17/2010

A brief look at my local movie showtimes indicates there are currently nine films available in 3D format in my neighborhood. Nine. This craze, for some reason, has no indication of stopping.

So, it's interesting to see some inventiveness beyond $13.00 ticket prices and disposable glasses. "i3DG is a playful analog extension to an iPhone or an iPodTouch, converting its 2D display into a layered 3D view. Using the old technique of placing a half-silvered mirror at a 45-degree angle in front of an image, in a new context, the project extends upon 3D displays and iPhones. As a peripheral gadget, i3DG can support a wide range of different applications, from  3D videos and animations to accelerometer-based games."
