NEC Shows Off 3D All-in-one Models

by Reads (1,669)

At a press event in Japan today, NEC showed off a number of all-in-one desktops with an integrated 3D display. All we know about the computer so far is that the new all-in-ones offer up a Blu-ray player to provide the 3D content – chances are you can use the all-in-one for 3D gaming, too, but AIOs aren’t known for their high gaming performance – what makes the 3D interesting, however, is the kind that’s being employed.

Instead of using expensive techniques that require $100-$150 shutter glasses or the equivalent, NEC decided to go with some polarization filters.  That means that to watch the 3D content, all you need are a few pairs of those affordable glasses you wore when you saw Avatar (next time, keep them?) – not that you’re likely to have that many people crowded around one little all-in-one system.  No prices yet, but NEC plans to roll these out sometime this year.
