The biggest annoyance with 3D technology is wearing the glasses, thankfully there are people out there who know this and are coming up with a better glasses-free solution.
One of those people is Stream TV Networks, who have just revealed to the world this new technology they are calling, Ultra-D. The technology will work with a variety of devices including PCs, Picture Frames, Tablets and TVs, and will allow you to view full 3D content without glasses.
The technology all mounts into an auto-converter box which will convert any 2D content into 3D, as we said before, without glasses. All the user does is vplug-in their device and watch in full 3D.
Currently the technology has not been released to the public, but stream TV Networks has just announced that they will be setting up public displays of the new product in France, Germany, Scotland, Prague, Tapei, Philadelphia, Beijing, Shanghai, London and New York in time for the Olympics.
Their new 42 inch TV sets are already being shown in these locations (details in PR) for the rest of the week, as well as being shown of during the Summer of 3D, where they will be showing the technology of in bars across the world.
The more interesting thing is that they have also said they will be announcing a new partnership with one of the world’s largest TV manufacturers at this years IFA, I can’t help but wonder who that could be…
