Sharp Airs "No Glasses" 3D Display, Possibly Coming to Nintendo 3DS

Sharp logoThe television manufacturing industry at CES 2010 revealed itself to be deeply enamored with 3D sets. However, doubts remain over whether users will be willing to don special glasses every time they want to watch events broadcast in TV. A handful of companies, including Sharp, are alternatively pushing sets that don't require glasses.

The new Sharp display uses something called "CG-Silicon technology" to achieve high brightness and low cross-talk. The new technology shrinks the size of wiring, enabling a brightness of 500 cd/m2, twice the brightness of previous 3D mobile displays.

The display supports touch technology, measures 3.4-inches, and sports a 480x854 pixel FWVGA resolution. That size screen could fit in the fourth generation iPhone, but its inclusion seems less likely. Sharp does say that it would be a great match for smartphones though.

A more likely target is that the display will be used in Nintendo's upcoming 3DS, portable 3D gaming console. The new portable is expected to launch in March 2011 as a follow-up to the best-selling Nintendo DS. By then the display will have been produced for some time, as it's expected to start production in the first half of fiscal 2010. Hitachi has also been speculated to possibly be the producer of the Nintendo 3DS screen.

It'd also make a pretty nice addition to an Android handset, in our opinion.
