This Android Tablet Doesn't Need Glasses for 3D
Rockchip's upcoming android tablet seems to use Sharp's 3D touchscreen LCD technology.
Rockchip is reportedly showcasing an Android tablet during IFA in September that will support 3D without the need for special glasses. Using autostereoscopic technology, it's speculated to use the same lenticular array as the Nintendo 3DS, and will even provide users the means to adjust the amount of 3D, or turn the feature off altogether.
Called Supernova x1, very little is known about the device, however it looks to be the size of a large smartphone--possibly 3.4-inches using Sharp's recently-announced 3D Touchscreen LCD technology. Images of the device taken at a recent tradeshow definitely show the vertical slits used to create the 3D visuals, however the pattern curves and shift in the photos, depending on the camera's angle.
As for non-3D features, the photos clearly show a MicroSD slot, a USB port, and a volume button on one side. The device was also playing Toy Story 3, SES Astra's 3D channel, some kind of webcam app, photos and more in 3D--all of which wasn't adequately captured by digital cameras.
IFA 2010 kicks off in Berlin on September 3 and ends on the 8th. Expect to see more from this Android-based tablet during that week. To see a whole batch of Supernova x1 screenshots, head here.
