Nanotechnology company Nanoveu has developed technology for viewing 3D content on mobile devices without the need for glasses, vastly improving the convenience and quality of a 3D viewing experience. The company has dedicated its innovations to redefining the 3D experience on mobile without noticeable drawbacks and for an affordable price.
Called the EyeFly3D, Nanoveu’s innovation is an ultra-thin plastic screen that attaches on top of existing smartphone or tablet screens. The screen consists of thousands of microscopic, precision engineered lenses that enable viewing of stereoscopic content. This technology works by providing right eye and left eye images simultaneously to be processed by the human eye, giving a realistic illusion of three dimensions.
In addition to eliminating the need for glasses as a cumbersome accessory, the EyeFly3D boasts a clearer and brighter image than now-obsolete 3D glasses. The screen does this without affecting normal 2D content at all, which is presented as sharp as ever, and does not even dim the screen as previous attempts at this technology did. Because the plastic is scratch resistant, the product effectively can serve as a screen protector while maintaining high quality viewing in both 2D and 3D.
The EyeFly3D is accompanied by two apps, EyeFly3D Vid for the viewing of videos and EyeFly3D Pix for pictures. Users can stream video in real time through the video app, including using Youtube, and images can be converted to 3D for sharing, viewing and even to be set as the device’s wallpaper.
Currently the technology is only developed for Apple devices, and will be available soon. Specifically, it is compatible with the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5S, iPod Touch 5th generation and iPad Air. The screen is expected to retail for $29.95 for the iPhone and iPod versions and $84.95 for the iPad.
