Chinese manufacturer Hampoo has been showing its 10.1” glasses free 3D tablet at last week’s Computex event in Taipei.
3D solutions company DDD has licensed its TriDef 3D Mobile software for the tablets, heading for mass production and an expected release in the third quarter of this year.
This means the HD tablets will be able to automatically convert 2D photos, videos and games into 3D. DDD will receive quarterly royalty revenues from Hampoo based on the volume of 3D tablets shipped.
TriDef 3D Mobile allows over 50 of the latest popular Android mobile games, including “Angry Birds”, “Blood and Glory” and “Cordy”, to be played in stereoscopic 3D ‘off the shelf’, even though the games were not specifically developed for 3D.
The Hampoo tablets are also compatible with the soon-to-be-released Yabazam 3D Android app, which provides the same original 3D programming available via DDD’s Yabazam content portal. Yabazam has over 80 streaming 3D movie titles for viewing on 3D consumer devices and that number is expected to grow significantly over the next year.
Chris Yewdall, Chief Executive of DDD, said: “Our TriDef 3D Mobile solution is gaining traction in the rapidly developing 3D glasses-free tablet market. We are pleased to be welcoming Hampoo as our latest licensee as it prepares to launch the world’s first 3D tablet for mass production.”
