Wazabee Enables 3D On The iPhone And Macbook
3D pics are coming to an iPhone near you. How so? The Wazabee 3DeeShell. Complicated spellings aside, the 3DeeShell is an iPhone case that also covers the iPhone’s (or iPod Touch) screen and enables 3D viewing. Although it won’t magically turn any image, or movie into 3D, Wazabee will be providing 3 separate applications for creating, accessing and viewing applicable content. Of note, they also have plans for a Macbook sized version.
- For iPod Touch users, 3DeeVUsion makes it possible to view three-dimensional content and create their own content as well by taking advantage of the device’s simple touchpad operation.
- With the 3Dee!oadr Web application, users have access to a stock of more than 500,000 3D images thanks to a connection to Yahoo Flickr! image services. The software also enables users to upload their own 3D images and share them with friends.
- With the 3DeeCamera, users can generate stereoscopic pictures in a matter of seconds using mobile software and a native iPhone camera. Various viewing modes mean that the pictures can be viewed with or without 3D glasses.

The Wazabee 3DeeShell uniquely depicts 3D content such as games, pictures and videos on the Apple iPhone in an extraordinarily realistic way. The housing contains a lens that eliminates the need for special 3D glasses, while serving as a stylish protective skin at the same time. The lens can easily be removed at any time in order to switch back and forth between normal 2D and spellbinding 3D graphics.
