I am not certain why I spent today reporting on two 3D products when I just said two posts ago that 3D is practically so yesterday. The Commander 3D is a tablet, but Nanoveu has put out an EyeFly 3D, and it is simple cover made for a mobile device to bring it into 3D.
I saw this at CES 2014, and I have to admit that it was very convincing. Just to let you know, it will play videos that are designed for 2D and 3D glasses-free viewing. I also discovered that if you have a picture taken in 2D, you can easily convert it to 3D with their app. All that is required is just touching the area that you want to put in the background, and the effect works.
You can get it for the iPhone 5/5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 4, the iPad Mini, and it will be available for the iPad Air for about $59.95. The others are different prices.

I don’t know if you know this, but glasses-free 3D has come to phones. Do you remember the HTC EVO 3D or the LG Optimus 3D Max? I saw these phones two years ago at CTIA, but they didn’t exactly change the world of mobile phones as we know it.
This EyeFly 3D film could change things, in an after-market kind of way. This special type of film uses a half-million miniaturized lens-like structures, each of which are about one thousandth the width of a human hair. This is good for stereoscopic content for playback, making 2D into 3D.
So far, this EyeFly 3D film is only going to be made available for the iPhone 5 and fifth generation iPod Touch. The cost is about $34.95, and the company hopes to put out more models, including one for the iPad.
My Source, which rhymes with Bee net, stated that the EyeFly makes the iPhone 5’s retina display make it look like it has lower resolution and text and icons appear to have jagged edges.
