JAPANESE COMPUTER MANUFACTURER NEC has announced that it will be releasing a 3D personal computer this autumn.
The prototype of the 3D PC was shown off yesterday and it allows users to see 3D images by wearing special glasses. It will go on sale in Japan by the end of September.
NEC had a go at 3D computers for the domestic market in 2004 but was forced to pull out because there was sod all software available to take advantage of it.
However now it thinks that with electronics manufacturers releasing 3D flat-screen TVs it will give it another go.
NEC's 3D computer uses software to convert two-dimensional photographs or movies into 3D images, and includes a media player for 3D visual software and TV programs.
We guess it is hoping that the Internet porn industry will find 3D to be the killer application it has been waiting for. We can't immediately see how 3D is the sort of thing that you could use at work, but then againg we might be wrong about that.
The press release fails to mention price or if NEC will market its 3D PC in other countries. µ
