Tech Industry: Toshiba 3D eyeglass-free prototype

1:40 /

At CES 2011, Molly Wood and Dan Ackerman check out the glasses-free 3D laptop prototype.

-Toshiba has a prototype right here. It doesn't have a name; it's just the Toshiba 3D eyeglass-free prototype. -Okay. -And it's a big screen. It does no eyeglass 3D. It meant to work for one person, so it has a little demo here. I'm gonna try to free my neck and maybe we can capture this. The webcam is gonna see my face and then it's gonna lock in on my eyes like it's doing right now on this little screen right here and that's gonna kick the 3D mode in and then as I move my head, it's going to adjust the 3D stereoscopic image slightly in order that it stays in focus for me and gives me the correct 3D view, and then if I move out of the frame, it's gonna switch back to 2D because is sees there's no eyeballs there. -Alright. -Now in the final product, it's not gonna have this pop-up window within a window here. The picture and picture-- -And turn it. So turn it out toward the-- toward our camera. -Okay. -We wont be able to see the demo, but you can kind of see that there is-- -That there is a picture and picture-- -the smaller display up there in that kind of right-hand corner where-- -yeah, it's up here. So this is just for demo purposes-- -your hand up here, you know? -you'll see your head and you'll see your head in here and it'll lock into your eyes and then the stereoscopic image will adjust on the ply. -Uh huh. -And the 3 or 4 times-- I've actually seen this, so it's always kind of work-- -Yeah. -even though the prototype in be kind of rush situation that we putted in like right now shows me that that can actually kinda be done. -And so that would end up as a gaming laptop, I mean, it cost me a branded, at least right now, even though it's a prototype you think? -Maybe more of a 3D Blu-ray watching and 3D video watching. -Oh, okay. -But I think a lot of people who are making 3D laptops now are really pitching them, less of gaming, although this is certainly good for gaming, more as, you know, home entertainment system where you can watch that 3D Blu-ray content that starting to coming out now. -Great!
