WikiPad:3D – an Autostereoscopic 3D Gaming Tablet Coming Soon

January 12th, 2012 · 8 Comments · General 3D News


WikiPad:3D is claimed to be the first autostereoscopic 3D Android 4.0-based tablet with an attachable video game controller designed to offer maximum comfort and designed especially for mobile gamers. The device made its debut at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas and while there is still not too much information about it yet, it has clearly drawn a lot of attention and is turning to be a product generating a lot of interest in the stereoscopic 3D community. The device has been designed for portability (it is a tablet after all), using an 8-inch autostereoscopic 3D touch screen with a claimed resolution of 1080p (or capable of playing back 1080p video, although some sources talk about 1280×800 resolution?) and should come with Android 4.0 OS. The resolution in stereo 3D mode however is probably less than the claimed 1080p or the higher resolution is most likely only available in 2D mode. The WikiPad video game controller can be attached directly to the tablet, making the device almost like a portable gaming console, but with a bigger display and with some extra capabilities like the stereo 3D support. And while you should be able to play games directly on the tablet it seems that the makers of the device plan to support new cloud gaming services on it, so you could be able to even play PC games on your portable device with much higher graphics quality that the tablet’s hardware could normally offer.

The WikiPad should be available for purchase in March this year with a price maybe of around $249 USD, and hopefully we are going to be seeing some more information about the device including detailed technical specifications and a list of all the features it is going to offer.

Visit the official WikiPad website, although there isn’t much info on it yet…

    Price is a concern, at that price I doubt the hardware will be powerful enough to play 3D games well. Also this company has no track record, I would much more interested if this were an LG device

    The gaming controls, buttons, etc, are they generally supported by Android OS and applications? Or they work only in some games that are specifically aware of them?

    Technology and civilization walk hand in hand and civilization is nothing without the skin of society, brushing up against itself, speaking strange nothings across dimly lit avenues and computer screens. If we’re going to understand ourselves in this digital era, it will be through watching the adoption of technology by people to express themselves as people. I am an anthropologist and an author of science fiction and fantasy–and with my techology, I hope to open up new and exciting worlds that both enlighten the humanity of my friends and fans, but also educate and enhance the expression of their own personhood.

    Hi , i have already this 3D/2D tablet at my home now , it just amazing ! it play 1080p 3D and 2D contents witout any problem in all video formats : Mkv , m2ts , avi , divx , flv ,etc 2D/3D pictures too , music all formats aac , ac3 , mp3 , flac , wav , etc

    The 3D 1080p experience are just amazing because of this HD 1280×800 pixels LED capacitive (multipoints 5) screen . The 3D 1080p Blu-Ray pictures are very crisp and with pop-up effect with much better effect and no eyes pain or headache anymore like with OLD 3D over glasses technology 1960 – 2011.
    The screen have 30 angles of views in 3D not only 1 like on Nintendo 3DS , Evo 3D and Lg Optimus 3D so you can watch 3D deep effect not only in face but also at 30 different positions !

    It hase MicroSD card reader , very very important because all 3D 720p/1080p 2D and 3D movies and games take alot of space because at it very high end quality so you can download 3D/2D HD content on Youtube are a very good example over Internet Download Manager all your favorite clips and put on a 32Go MicroSd card and put on this amazing tablet , the quality are amazing ! All are so CRISP , and look simply unbeliveble !

    The tablet hase also HDMI 1080p output so you can connect to your BIG HDTV 55inch and play Games or 1080p movies from this tablet over HDMI cable

    It also have USB 2.0 OTG compatible , so you can connect wireless mouse and keyboard on this tablet and play games at 15 feet from your sofa over the tablet connected to the TV

    It have front vga webcam , back 2MP camera , audio stereo speakers (powerfull 3w rms)

    The tablet are very light too , only 530 grams for 7.8mm deep and at this resolution 1280×780 pixels on 8 inch look unbelieveble amazing crisp pictures thanks to the full resolution 1080p playing support , my impression of 3D free glasses on this tablet , i think the 8 inch 16:9 ratio (perfect for today movies ratio 16:9 not 4:3 like Ipad 1/2/3) are a perfect size , manufactury recommend watching 3D movies at 65inch distance from the screen and it right ! at 65 inch the 3D look perfect for the 8 inch and you have an illusion to have a much more BIG screen when you are in 3D mode compared to 2D mode.

    All the tablet all menus are in 2D , only 3D movies you can choose to watch in 3D mode (witout any glasses) or 2D but a 2d movies still play in 2D

    The Manufacturer of this Wikepad tablet are Gadmei company who already make 3 others 3D free glasses tablets with exactly same tablet like Wikepad but it didn’t have game controler , for this one who want only the tablet for play movies , internet , music , pictures , etc

    The others 3D free glasses tablets by Gadmei are already selling by usb.brando.com at a very low price who start at only 199 $

    Gadmei T863 , Gadmei T863 v2 , Gadmei T883 and coming soon WikiPad 3D tablet !
