    Should it be possible to create a new handheld where you have a three-dimensional view like the virtual boy was
    (with full color, the same thickness as gba) ?

    I don't mean that this must come out the screen, but instead that you have a depth view inside the handheld.

    What would be the point of doing layered lcd screens? That would just unnecessarily make it more expensive and harder to create games. The software can do the layering.

    I would suggest doing a normal screen, except alter the image to be 3-dimensional - like a 3D movie. But have the 3D glasses build into the visual type thing. I believe that some nVidia video cards have the ability to create those types of images. So I don't see why a handheld can't do it.

    Or you could have a handheld which displays the 3D image and you wear the special glasses. Either way, really.
