Nintendo 3DS is awesome!

Posted by Charbax – March 1, 2011

My first time playing with the Nintendo 3DS! This is going to popularize non glasses 3D screen for the first time! The 3D experience is actually awesome, it's impressive, it works! I just wish Nintendo would install Android Honeycomb on this device and do something like the Playstation Suite, provide all their games legally to the Android platform. They should also make a 3G/LTE-enabled modem add-on for the 3DS to allow for online gaming outside of WiFi hotspots, and they should do a games subscription model, $10/month to access all the games as downloads, including new level upgrades and online gaming for all games.

Acer DX241H, 24″ Monitor, Freescale i.MX51 Powered, comes with Chrome OS pre-installed?

Posted by Charbax – February 22, 2011

There is talk about a new version of the 24" 1080p Acer monitor, the one that comes with the Freescale i.MX51 processor (see it in the video below), to be released with Chrome OS on it instead of that photoframe type of OS that is on the previously released Acer D241H. See my video from CES showing this Acer D241H and imagine it running Chrome OS as demonstrated by Freescale for the past year in other of my videos.

The simple thing is like this, Acer DX241H could simply come with some USB Host ports to connect USB keyboard and mouse, it could come with the slightly faster i.MX53 processor, possibly more RAM suitable for Chrome OS use, and most importantly, it just might be that we are approaching the point in time when Google is ready to unleash Chrome OS devices, ARM Powered as well, and this type of product could be it.

The key is this, you can add Chrome OS using ARM such as Freescale's ARM Cortex-A8, with WiFi, and all, for just $50 more. The same thing is going to happen with HDTVs, you will be able to add Google TV to those as well using ARM for just less than $50 more.

Sony-Ericsson Liveview

Posted by Charbax – February 20, 2011

The concept is pretty awesome, this small touch screen bluetooth screen that can be worn as a watch can interact with any of your Bluetooth enabled Android devices, it's got an SDK for app developers to add Bluetooth remote functionality for their apps. I'm hoping someone make remote controlling for VOIP apps, calling contacts, and other useful Android apps on your smartphone or tablet.

ST-Ericsson U8500 can capture 720p 3D at 30fps and 1080p 2D at 30fps. Here's a demo of the 3D effect captured using 2 cameras and displayed on a 3D HDTV.

Dialog Semiconductor real-time 2D to 3D conversion

Posted by Charbax – February 16, 2011

This is the first real-time 2D to 3D video conversion in silicon presented by Dialog Semiconductor at Mobile World Congress 2011, it may be useful for the upcoming glasses free 3D screen devices that are coming out. I am not sure though how they analyse the video to "guess" the 3D features in the images, do they analyse each static image or do they process frames before and after to determine 3D space based on the motion?

LG Optimus 3D

Posted by Charbax – February 14, 2011

The product manager on LG Optimus 3D presents what may be the most powerful smart phone ever shown thus far. It uses the Texas Instruments OMAP4 ARM Cortex-A9 Dual-core processor, that is fast enough to record 720p 3D video, it includes even the new LG 4.3" glasses free 3D screen, where the 3D effect can be turned on or off.

googleartproject.com – this is why we need Quad HD screens and projectors

Posted by Charbax – February 1, 2011

Here's a new project from Google, to digitalize all the worlds art from all the worlds art galleries and make it freely available in ultra high resolution online: http://googleartproject.com

Picasa, YouTube and now also Google Art Project, all cloud services that are ready for Quad HD and beyond!

The usage scenario is something like this, have a slideshow of your favorite art from around the world displayed in Quad HD resolution in your living room sub-$1000 46" Quad-HDTV.

Anyone with a 3megapixel photo camera or higher creates photo content suitable to be viewed on a Quad HD screen.

Anyone filming with upcoming RED cameras or other consumer camcorders to come that record 2K, 3K, 4K, 5K or more, all those deserve to be seen on Quad HD screen, and can be streamed from YouTube even!

Screen and Projector industry, please take this advice: Give up on 3D as soon as possible and make us some Quad-HD, 4K2K screens and projectors at the same cost as 3D!!! All it takes is a new faster processor to process the higher resolution!

Here are some of the Quad HD screens I saw at conferences during the past few years, every time I see content on a Quad HD screen, I am blown away:
JVC 4K2K Camcorder and TV at CES 2011
Samsung 3840x2160p 82″ LCD HDTV at CeBIT 2008
JVC 4K2K HDTV and Projector at IFA 2008
