"true" 3D is irrelevant. Your eyes doesn't care if something is "actually 3d" or if it's getting "simulated light". Your eyes are sensors that receive light. It is possible (though has not yet been done) to deliver light to the eye in a way that is identical to what it receives from a real 3d object. Stereoscopic 3d is a step towards that, by simulating the effect that distance has on the differing viewpoints of your two eyes.

This effect is not at all the same thing. It simulates the perspective changes you would get when you moved your head around a 3d object. Sure both ideas are components of what a complete 3d simulation would require, but they are not at all analogous. Advertising this as "glasses free" is silly, of course it doesn't require glasses, it's simulating an entirely different aspect of 3d.

They are still both simulated 3D effects. And the researcher's claims are nothing more than that. It's a simulated glass-free 3D effect. Nothing more, nothing less.

re "true 3D", If you followed my posts in the thread, you'd see it's directly relevant to my point. I was replying to another post that said iPad's version isn't true 3D yet at the same time inferring 3D with glasses is.
