EyeFly 3D: A Screen Protector That Makes The iPhone 5 3D-Capable [video]


If you’ve always wished you could watch 3D content on your mobile device, you’re in luck. A team of Singapore-based researchers has developed a special film that turns the screens of mobile devices into 3D-capable displays.

The EyeFly 3D film, which looks just like a typical screen protector, actually consists of 500,000 miniaturized lens-like structures that measure about one-thousandth the width of a human hair. When applied to a mobile device, the filter works with dedicated iOS and Android apps to render stereoscopic 3D content for playback. Nanovue, a startup set up to bring the EyeFly 3D to market, is working on apps to convert existing 2D content to stereoscopic 3D.

At $34.95, the EyeFly 3D film is a lot more affordable than buying a 3D phone such as the LG Optimus 3D Max to view 3D content. It is now available for preorder online, with worldwide shipping costs inclusive until May 1. The units are expected to ship later this month. Nanovue is also working with distributors to bring EyeFly 3D to physical stores in the U.S., U.K., Australia, Thailand, and Singapore.

Right now, only the models compatible with the iPhone 5 and fifth-gen iPod Touch are available for preorder. However, the company plans to introduce EyeFly 3D films for the iPad and popular Android devices in coming months.
