Jeremie Francone and Laurence Nigay from the Laboratory of Informatics of Grenoble have released a video showing a new technique for delivering interactive 3D to the iPad. The iPad’s camera watches and tracks the position of the viewer’s head to deliver the an image in proper perspective.
It’s worth noting that this experience of 3D is different than the typical 3D television experience. With 3D TV, objects visibly appear to be dimensional. The effect here keeps things flat but allows you to have the feeling of moving around an object dimensionally. This technique is a very interactive/active experience.
