3d pictures anyone??

2D to 3D conversion techniques — whether cinematic or otherwise — don’t have us jumping for joy, but Nikon’s new NF-300i display sounds like a concept we could get behind. It’s a 7.2-inch digital photo frame running Android 2.1 on an autostereoscopic (glasses-less) screen, which sports a special double-density lenticular lens to display images at full WSVGA resolution (800 x 600) whether in 2D or 3D modes. It pulls down images from the cloud to 4GB of internal storage over wired ethernet and 802.11 b/g WiFi, or via USB port if you happen to have MPO files just sitting around for some reason. The notion is that Japanese users will sign up for Nikon’s new My PictureTown 3D conversion and hosting service for ¥19,550 (about $244) a year or ¥1,995 ($24) a month and get all their JPEG vacation photos spirited to the device in glorious 3D, and that’s also the only way you’ll likely ever see one of these screens — Nikon’s loaning, not selling the NF-300i as part of those membership fees.
