SINGAPORE - EyeFly3D, a screen protector that turns ordinary mobile devices into 3D viewing platforms, won in the Technology Innovation category at the Institution of Engineers Singapore (IES) Prestigious Engineering Achievement Awards 2013.
Developed by Temasek Polytechnic and the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering, EyeFly3D is said to be the first glasses-free 3D accessory for smartphones. Nanoveu, a local start-up marketing the product, also claimed that the 0.1mm-thin display film does not affect touchscreen sensitivity, brightness and resolution. Users can, thus, enjoy 2D and 3D images seamlessly on the same screen protector, which works in both portrait and landscape views as well.
Launched in April, EyeFly3D is currently available for the iPhone 5 and 4S and the iPod Touch 5, at a retail price of US$34.95 (S$43). Nanoveu said it plans to release versions for the iPhone 5C and 5S and selected Android phones by the end of this year.
