Glasses-Free 3D on the iPad

It's not the first time we see this system in action (I recall a similar system by Johnny Chung Lee using Wiimotes) but, now it has arrived to the iPad. A clever way to turn your iPad into a virtual 3D window.

Ths system works by using the iPad front facing camera to detect where you are, and adjust the screen image accordingly, in order to create the illusion of a 3D volumetric display.

(There were Apps using a similar approach by using the acelerometers to "tilt" the screen - with this system you can leave the iPad untouched, and just move your head around.)

It's quite effective, as you'll be able to see in the following video.
