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.
