Default IPhone goes 3D

Quote:
Truth be told, it's exactly what the world needed. More 3D gimmickry... on the iPhone and iPod touch, no less. With over 125 million of those two devices in circulation, Hasbro's betting that a new accessory will have a greater-than-average chance at taking off next Spring, with the My3D goggles set to put the View back in ViewMaster. Purportedly, the toy firm is expected to fully reveal the device to investors later today, with it being "aimed at both children and adults" and offering a 3D viewing experience on games, virtual travel, augmented reality apps and entertainment content. The device itself resembles a set of binoculars, and just as the aforementioned ViewMaster, there's a slot where you place your iPod touch or iPhone. Users will have to browse the App Store for compatible My3D content, with some of it to be offered up gratis. We're guessing more than a few curious consumers will bite at just $30, but how hard would it have been to get this thing onto store shelves next month? A holiday opportunity missed, Hasbro

From the look of it, how do you touch the screen if it's in the device?

It doesn't seem like you could do anything other than start a movie, pop it in and then watch it.

This world is going 3-D crazy. The technology seems cool, but I bet it gets old fast. Anyways, it would be uncomfortable wearing the goggles all the time.

I have no inclination to get a 3D television.

TV's that don't require 3D glasses for 3D viewing are on their way pretty soon in the market.

I don't find that 3D enhances my visual experience. At least not yet. It's better than it was before but after seeing several movies in 3D, I'd rather just plain old loveable 2D!
