New 3D Android tablet will not require glasses Rockchip has introduced their new 3D Android tablet this week, one that will be glasses-free while still giving owners full 3D support.
The tablet will use autostereoscopic technology, the same displays that will be available in the unreleased Nintendo 3DS.

Users can adjust the amount of 3D, and even disable it completely.

Rockchip has dubbed their tablet the Supernova x1 but little will be known officially about the device until the IFA in September.

Pictures show a 3.4-to-4-inch screen, a microSD slot, a USB port, SES Astra's 3D channel and volume controls.

After looking at the slides I can say it looks like shit. Seriously, I am being biased as I don't have it in front of me for the unit to successfully trick my eyes into perception of depth, however if that blur even slightly occurs on these units to come, and not just this but 3DS or TVs, it won't really matter if you can turn it off or not, it just awful.
