CP24 - 3D on smartphones could take off as emerging technology due to small screen size

(14-May-10) The annual top 10 list of emerging technologies compiled by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology says 3D on smartphones could take off -- without the use of special glasses.

"At the moment, we can only really do that effectively on the big screen with dumb-ass glasses," Jason Pontin, editor of the MIT Technology Review.

"It's also really expensive and no one wants to wear them," Pontin said. "On a small screen we can now create objects in three dimensions."

It's hoped the ability to convert two-dimensional content to 3D on smartphones and other emerging technologies on this year's list will make a difference.

"They represent an entirely new way of thinking about the problem," Pontin said of this year's top 10.

"They are all solving a persistent or intractable problem whose solution, if it occurred, would have a broad human impact, either economic or social."
