The Nintendo 3DS will be out sometime soon, and while we’re starting to see the start of 3D hitting our home a/v worlds, this device is of most interest because it uses a stereoscopic display to send the correct perspective images to your left and right eyes. Short version? It doesn’t require 3D glasses. 3D depth adjustment is controllable to adjust for your eyes – and there is a double lens camera on the device so that you can take photos that take advantage of the effect. Has all the usual DS features like wifi, backwards compatibility, and free online gaming access, but the processor has supposedly been upgraded.
Another nice touch: first game title it comes with is a new episode in the Kid Icarus series: “Uprising.” I lost weeks playing the original.
Kotaku has a nice guide to Nintendo’s latest portable.
