When at StereoGraphics we had on-going conversations with Apple that spanned more than 20 years — including a meeting with The Jobs. People came and went and so did their interest. Apple had us in their Siggraph booth one year.
The autostereoscopic technology they will be adding to their tablet was demonstrated many years ago. There’s little development risk. Sadly a couple of guys I know lost their shirts trying to get people interested only a few years ago. They were a only bit ahead of the curve.
What Apple can do now is probably going to be good and if they do everything it’s possible to do it will be superb for single user stereoscopic viewing.
