Master Image 3D and Rightware showcase joint 3D UI tablet venture

Working together to bring cool new 3D interfaces to cars, tablets and phones

COMPUTEX Taipei 2011 - Yesterday we were invited to visit Master Image 3D and Rightware at the Hyatt hotel where we were given access to look at an early mockup of a new 3D user interface designed by Rightware and using autostereoscopic 3D (AS3D) aka 3D glasses-free screen technology from Master Image 3D.

 

 

In the video below we see an Android 2.3 tablet; they call it the 3D CELL reference tablet which is based on Texas Instrument's OMAP 4 platform technology. It is purely just used to enable the demo of the 3D UI interface from Rightware. Basically to explain it quickly, Rightware add their UI over the top of Android with a new home screen and other cool screens to allow flip style access to your apps and so on.

 

The UI will work basically on any device that supports OpenGL ES API, it will work. Tero Sarkkinen, CEO of Rightware, told us that it will not require a high powered processor because of the hardware acceleration provided through OpenGL supported devices.

You will see this technology go into vehicles from Audi and if all goes to plan from this joint venture, you should see everything from tablets to smartphones implementing Rightware's 3D UI late this year or sometime next year.
