3D iPod touch in development according to rumor [video]

At some point, Apple is likely to make a loud entry into the growing 3D space, which is expected to become more crowded than ever in 2011. According to a new rumor Monday morning, the company’s entry make take place sooner than expected. Japanese enthusiast blog Kanteidan Blog claims Apple is ready to start building small 3D displays that may be included in the next-generation iPod touch. The displays would not need special glasses to operate, and would instead rely on glasses-free 3D technologies like motion and head tracking in order to create a 3D effect. Kanteidan Blog speculates that gaming will be a major focus for the upcoming 3D technology making its way to the iPod touch. If true, the news could spell trouble for Nintendo, which is expected to announce the U.S. launch of its Nintendo 3DS portable gaming console later this week. Apple is known to have been exploring 3D technology for quite some time, and the company owns several patents that cover 3D. No real evidence suggests that Apple is ready to implement 3D into its upcoming devices, however. Hit the break for a video showing what the experience might look like on the iPod touch.
