The i3DG Turns Your iPhone Or iPod Touch Into A 3D Display [video]

By using an old-school technique with a half-silvered mirror placed at a 45-degree angle, along with a special app, the i3DG Palm Top Theater turns your iPhone or iPod Touch into a 3D display. By splitting images or video into three layers using the template below, then reflecting them off of the mirrors, it creates the illusion of depth.

The devices and demo videos were created by media artist Jitsuro Mase, and have been making the rounds at interactive art exhibitions. No word on if and when they’ll put the gadget into production, or if it will remain a prototype for now.
