Philips has created a new display technology for 3D visualization without the need for 3D glasses. The technology is conceptually simple, involving a sheet of transparent lenses interfaced with a liquid crystal display. The sheet causes both of your eyes to view a slightly different image and your brain perceives these differences as depth.
Of course, 3D technology isn't really new at all. Philips have simply packaged a solution that is targeted at advertisers and video gamers. Don't expect to get 3D HDTV any time soon. This technology is dependent on a digital signal processor that combines a regular 2D image with a depth map before rendering. Regular 2D video cannot be shown in 3D without a depth map. However, Philips have created an OpenGL control that extracts depth information from existing 3D models so that they can be viewed in 3D.
