LG To Unveil 3D Game Converter.

LG will soon demonstrate the world's first OpenGL-based 2D to 3D game conversion engine for the smartphone platform. The move is expected to increase the quantity of 3D content for handheld devices.

The converter will enable small and medium-sized game developers to offer 3D versions of their existing 2D games without major investment and hassle. Moreover, smartphone users will also be able to convert their 2D games into 3D free of charge.

Dr. Henry Nho, company's 3D Technology Evangelist explains: Using the existing depth information, the 3D Game Converter generates two different images - one for the foreground and one for the background. It then uses a thin film called Parallax Barrier on the display to show the left image to the left eye and the right image to the right eye, creating an illusion of visual depth.

The 3D Game Converter is expected to be unveiled at IFA 2011, and the application will be included in the first Maintenance Release (MR) of the Optimus 3D starting this October.
