Next-gen iPad to Come with Glasses-Free 3D Display?

3D has already begun making its way into a handful of consumer gadgets, notably Nintendo’s 3DS, which offers glasses-free 3D viewing. With RIM’s recent underwhelming, glasses-required 3D demonstration for the BlackBerry PlayBook, it’s clear everyone has a touch of the 3D bug. Now recently RCR Wireless claims to have multiple sources telling it that Apple is planning on incorporating 3D technology into the next-generation iPad.

“The fact that the iPad 3 is 3D is a dead cert”, one Hollywood insider close to the big movie studios told RCR, adding that the screen would be the real magic. She went on to say that the big film studios were currently running around like “blue arsed flies trying” to gear up to release plenty of 3D content in time for Apple’s next launch.

We’re not sure about the reliability of these sources, but Apple has clearly been exploring 3D technology over the years. And 3D, of course, has also been a big recent trend with the release of many 3D TVs and 3D movies. It seems the next generation iPad could potentially come with a 3D display, similar to the one used in the Nintendo 3DS, albeit much larger.
