Glasses-free 3D arcade machines for Japan

SI Electronics' Y3 board is high-def 3D with no goggles required

SI Electronics is to launch new arcade machine technology in Japan which allows 3D visuals without the use of glasses.

Perhaps comparable to a larger version of Nintendo's upcoming 3DS handheld, the System Board Y3 can handle high-definition graphics in 3D with minimal performance cost, reports Andriasang.

While SIE's board may not ultimately slink across to the West, it is growing proof that stereoscopic glasses may not ultimately be required for home 3D displays.

The system, which is based around a 800Mhz IBM PowerPC processor, will be revealed in full at Chiba's Amusement Machine Show on Thursday.
