Have you ever sneaked into a movie theater showing a 3D presentation, only to then realize you didn’t pay the higher admission fee in order to rent the 3D glasses? MOPIC has introduced a 3D/VR viewer, called Snap3D that is made in the form of a smartphone case. The viewer allows users to enjoy a stereoscopic screen without the use of 3D glasses.
With Snap3D’s exclusive application, users may use this app-based case to not only enjoy 3D videos but also to play 3D games and capture 3D images. Snap3D can be used as a smartphone screen protector on a daily basis, and when viewing 3D videos, users may simply attach Snap3D onto the front screen to enjoy the stereoscopic view.
Snap3D is being sold in more than 10 countries around the world. According to the company, applying MOPIC’s solution to VOD platforms creates endless possibilities of gaining potential users from a large pool of Snap3D users around the world.
A MOPIC’s representative says that the Snap3D solution will expand the existing limited target market of 3D TV consumers to a larger pool of smartphone consumers. MOPIC has already prepared plug-ins that are applicable to 3D/VR VOD platforms.”
The devices is priced at under $30 on eBay.
