Video: Stereoscopic 3D concept demo on the BlackBerry PlayBook


There has been so much hype over the upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook I truly hope it becomes the success RIM wants it to be. Rumours are still pointing to a release over the next couple months at a $500 price point. During the Mobile World Congress last week in Barcelona there was a few apps that were demonstrated that made the PlayBook a bit more exciting – such as the Scrapbook and WebWorks. These were designed by a company that RIM recently purchased called The Astonishing Tribe (TAT).

Another video has surfaced that shows it’s 3D capabilities – not capturing just showing. This was created by TAT and they stated that the “BlackBerry PlayBook tablet outputting stereoscopic 3D visuals, demonstrates many of the hardware features of the tablet: 1080P HD visual, micro HDMI output, and multi-touch support”. It’s a cool video and I’m sure any other tablets can preform this action but makes the PlayBook look a bit cooler to have.

    excuse my stupidity, …..
    SO does this make the LG 3D screen obsolete?

    • Stimulator

      The difference is that all the PlayBook is doing is sending a 3D rendered image via the HDMI output to a 3D ready screen that requires glasses, not on it’s own screen. Whereas the LG 3D phone has a screen which shows 3D itself, AND doesn’t require glasses to see the effect! The Nintendo 3DS has the same kind of screen.

    ^ nope. It’s just a concept and if TAT made it for the iPad/Xoom/Tab it would do the same

    • barry

      Maybe the iPad 2 and the Tab 10.1, but this requires a dual core to work, so the first iPad wouldn’t be able to.

      But they won’t because TAT is owned by RIM (BlackBerry) now.

    “AND doesn’t require glasses to see the effect! The Nintendo 3DS has the same kind of screen.”

    It can be output to a screen that does not requires glasses. It’s just right now, 3D with glasses are 10x better then the screens that are 3D with glasses.

    JUST RELEASE THIS DAMN TABLET NOW!!

  • Sean

    When it was announced it was the best tablet of all them all … now it’s just another tablet but is a berry

    If they really wanted to make a dent they would have released it before all these Honeycomb ones came out

  • Nick

    I remember how advanced the specs seemed when they were announced… Now they aren’t even the first to get released.

    I think they announced the Playbook so early to get attention instead of always being grouped with the also-ran’s… Still looks sweet, but cmon, release it!

    “Maybe the iPad 2 and the Tab 10.1, but this requires a dual core to work, so the first iPad wouldn’t be able to.”

    that is just wrong.. get your facts straight.

  • jettgerbil

    The fact is that the Itoy2 would not be able to do this as it cannot be used for 1080p.
    I wish you guys that used this site did your reserach…Playbook will top of the heap.
    Fastest dual core processor, 1 gig of RAM, QNX soft ware, full multi tasking, stereo speakers, can run multi platforms, great screen resolution, USB, and Micro HDMI slots…
    Wait till the 19th of April and you put this head to head with the Itoy2 and Xoom, it is a killer tablet
