You know 3DS was announced this morning? A new DS due next year that allows 3D gaming without special glasses? Want to know what it might look like?

Hit the link.

This is actually a 3D effect created on DSi, but is the new machine looks anything like this it bodes very well for the future.

The game shown in the video is called Hidden 3D Image: There It Is!, which was revealed back in March.

More on 3DS is promised from Nintendo at E3.

    It’s a cool effect, to be sure. Hard to imagine how it’d be useful for more than a handful of games, though.

    I seriously doubt the 3DS will be using this technique.

    I love it. I want one.

    And I also bet that Apple’s next iPhone will have some kind of 3D feature too.

    Ich auch. I have the game and it’s clever, though you need pretty much perfect lighting conditions for it to consistently work as it should. The new 3DS will be using 3D displays, and with similar architecture to the GameCube.

    It’s not 3D, it’s traditional graphics that have their movement linked to what the camera sees. Motion tracking would be a better description.

    This isnt quite 3D, its head tracking to control the camera.

    Yeah Hitachi have been showing off a no-glasses 3D screen for mobile phones recently. I reckon the 3DS is going to use something like that, although whether they use 2 screens or 1 remains to be seen.

    Here’s the same thing done on the Wii a few years back –

    Cool shit happens from about 3mins.

    A Paper Mario made using that technique would be great. Tilt the screen to see hidden objects etc.
