Sharp Shows Off Glasses-less 3D Display, Possibly One Used For Nintendo’s 3DS

3D displays as we know them require often uncomfortable and dorky looking glasses to achieve the illusion of depth. When Nintendo announced the 3DS last month one of the mystery questions regarding the handheld's features was how it would pull off "3D effects without the need for any special glasses." One look at Sharp's new 3.4 inch 2D - 3D touchscreen display and a lot of that mystery is answered.

The 3D display sports a 480x854 resolution that lights up at an impressive  brightness. It can be used as a touch screen, which falls nicely within the functional requirements of the 3DS mind you, and features a 1000:1 contrast ratio. Akihabra News already got a chance to see the display in action and came away quite impressed:

Finally I had the chance to enjoy Sharp’s new 2D/3D LCD that does not require 3D glasses. What I have seen so far has been quite disappointing, Sorry Fujifilm, but Sharp’s new technology is REALLY impressive and I cannot wait to have such a screen in my 3DS ! Not only the colors and brightness are good as advertised, but also the 3D Ghost-less Effect on this LCD is really impressive...Sharp have succeeded to do what Sony and Panasonic did without the need for 3D Glasses!

Apparently Sharp has already started mass production of the display for mobile devices. As per what mobile devices specifically, well, no official word has been given. It looks like the glove fits but we won't know for certain until Nintendo shows off the 3DS at E3.
