LG may have showcased a 3D mobile display at CES 2011 the other day, but Sharp one-ups the competition and shows the press and public a smartphone able to display and capture 3D content. We’re talking about the Sharp Galapagos handset, that will reach the US market in the future, as we’ve heard a while ago.
This device provides a glass-free 3D experience, as shown in the video below. You can switch from 2D to 3D content and viceversa, plus you’ll be able to adjust the depth of the 3D viewing, if you want to. Moving on to the really interesting aspects of the smartphone, its 3D image capture is enabled by a very original system.
Instead of using two lenses like the 3D cameras, this device relies on a software that takes the first shot, then moves the camera over a bit and takes the next shot, for a 3D effect. How cool is that?
