Glasses-Less 3D GUI Coming to Android Phones, 3DS

Rate this Entry


Ok, I know the 3DS thing is a given. I mean, if developers can't figure out a way to make use of the 3D capabilities of the 3DS in a meaningful way, I guess they would at least default to the HUD and Menu's. But this 3D on phones thing is special.

ScaleForm, makers of the GUI's you see in various games from Mass Effect 2 to Mod Nation Racers, have recently been developing a new 3D GUI to be used with autostereoscopic 3D displays. While the conformation of support of the Nintendo 3DS is, again, a given, the conformation for Android devices as well as other smartphone systems is a little surprising. Could this mean that we'll be getting more forms of portable 3D gaming on Android and (most likely) iDevices?

ScaleForm says sometime next summer is when they'll be rolling out their new stuff, so we'll just have to wait and see. Any of you looking forward to Doodle Jump 3D? C'mon, you know it'll happen...
