Eyes-On With TI`s Amazing 3D Phone Display

BARCELONA—If you`re going to watch Avatar on the move, why not watch it in 3D?
At the Mobile World Congress on Wednesday, TI showed off a tablet-sized device with a 3D display that doesn`t require glasses, running on an existing TI OMAP3 chipset. The company also promised high-def, 3D movies with its new OMAP4 chips.

By flickering two images very quickly – running at 60 frames per second rather than the usual 30 – the display transmits a different picture to each eye, creating a simulated 3D image. Still images looked good to me, with some depth, though movies weren`t quite as convincing.
