    This is weird! How? The only way I know about 3D movies without glasses is the ''cross-eye'' trick!
    Example:

    Watch in Full Screen!

    For some reason I have a hard time with most of these because they're so big. When they're a smaller size (like in your post) I can do them just fine, but the bigger they get the harder it is for me to properly view them because the images don't come close enough to overlay properly. [​IMG]

    That's pretty cool.

    Doesn't work for me.
    I tried for 15 minutes. The two black circles wouldn't come together no matter how I focused my eyes. [​IMG]

    Man I have never been able to do that cross-eye thing...

    Here it shows that it's possible, and here it explains in detail how this kind of screen works. It's pretty simple, and yet it's genius!

    I can't go cross-eyed so these tricks don't work for me. I need 3D glasses...

    Magic Eye is like bicycling. It took me a while to learn, but these days I can do it in a split second. How hilarious it would be if the 3DS worked like this. All Nintendo fans walking around with terrible headaches!

    Why are people still posting about the 3Ds when nintendo has already said it was a april fools joke and that they are not even going to be making any 3D consuls? [​IMG]

    @Prime_Zero

    What you fail to realize is that the new story here on GBATemp was an april fool's joke, have a look on any of the other major gaming blogs and see if there is any reference to the 3DS being a joke. hell, look at the link at the news post here too, if you find some proof of it being a joke anywhere else but this forum or news area then I want to see it. if not then please wake up and accept that you were fooled, and obviously fooled well.

    returning to the subject:

    that sharp screen does look like a good candidate for a 3ds screen but i wonder if it will be hard to look at after a while, i suppose we will know in june at E3

    Could it work like this?
    But with the whole thing in full motion? I'd suspect that all the frames needed would be too much, but I don't know about this stuff.
