So, apparently there’s a new app available in the Apple App Store called i3D for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. It supposedly maps your face using the front camera on the device and attempts to display in glasses-free 3D. Sound like Apple’s jab at the 3DS to you? It gets better.
i3D was created by Jeremie Francone and Laurence Nigay from the French Universite Joseph Fourier. Of course, it can’t come close to the 3DS’s 3D, seeing as the screen was specifically made to display 3D, but it’s a nice try. And, what’s more, some Miis show up in two of the featured demos! Let’s see how long this app makes it before they receive a Cease and Desist from Nintendo. This just goes to show you the screening process that Apple goes through with their apps. Nice going Apple.
