i3DG to bring 3D content to iPhone, without the need for glasses [video]

How would you fancy viewing 3D content on your iPhone without the need for any nerdy glasses or a hardware upgrade? Well, Media artist Jitsuro Mase has invented an add on for iOS devices, which he is calling i3DG.

i3DG is a playful analog extension to an iPhone or an iPodTouch, converting its 2D display into a layered 3D view. Using the old technique of placing a half-silvered mirror at a 45-degree angle in front of an image, in a new context, the project extends upon 3D displays and iPhones. As a peripheral gadget, i3DG can support a wide range of different applications, from 3D videos and animations to accelerometer-based games.

The system used is known as the Pepper Ghost technique, more information can be found at the Pepper Ghost wiki page, it is all a bit of smoke and mirrors, well without the smoke anyway.

All that is needed to watch 3D content on an iOS device is the i3DG which is a small slip on box that contains the mirrors and of course media created in the correct format; which apparently is extremely easy to create.

The device has already won a honorary mention at Ars Electronica Festival 2010, it will be shown off again at The International Film Festival Rotterdam in 2011.

Take a look at the video after the break and let us know in the comments if you can see yourself using something like this.

Talon Hard Shell Case for iPhone 4 - accessory review

Talon Hard Shell Case adds some color and fun to your iPhone 4 for under $10!

If you don't like the mostly drab black and bumpers and cases Apple is giving away, the Talon Hard Shell Case for iPhone 4 is a great way to add a little color and fun for under $10. It isn't anything fancy -- you can't throw your phone into a wall and expect it not to break (I would never try that anyways) -- but when it comes down to a nice colorful case without shelling out over $30, this is it.

Read on for more detail!

Macally Bookstand case for iPad - accessory review

Looking for an iPad case that doubles as a stand? Overwhelmed by the options? If you desire one that's nice and slim, your search may be over. The Macally Bookstand for iPad is a form fitting, yet protective case that can be used as a stand when in landscape.

The iPad snaps into the Macally Bookstand at each corner. This makes it very easy to take your iPad in and out of the case. It also means that the corners are the only spots on the edge of the iPad that are protected. This doesn't bother me; in fact, I prefer it. I'm a fan of slim cases that show off as much of the iPad as possible, so seeing the aluminum edges is a plus in my book. But if you're of the opposite mindset and want as much protection as possible, this case is not for you.

The front of the case is thin and kind of flimsy, but it holds up really well. About a third of the way from the inside, there is a seem in it which allows it to bend. Bending the front of the case to the back and sliding the flap into the provided slip gives the case a triangular shape. Now you can have your iPad at a nice typing angle on a table or your lap, or stand it up tall for easy viewing. I was nervous that touching the iPad would cause it to fall when having it stand tall, but this is not that case. The Macally Bookstand is nice and sturdy.

The outside of the Macally Bookstand is made from a velvet-like material that feels nice. However, it is prone to collecting lint and dirt. It is fairly obvious on the black one I've been using, but I suspect that it wouldn't look as bad on the gray one. I found that the easiest way to clean it is with an upholstery attachment on a vacuum cleaner hose - it only takes a few seconds.

If you’re looking for a slim stand case for your iPad, check out the Macally Bookstand for iPad available now from the TiPb iPad accessory store.
