Samsung demos 3D camera, display for cellphones

While cameraphones in America can still barely manage to capture a picture whose elements can actually be identified, our friends in Korea will soon be snapping 3D photos with their advanced mobiles. Samsung recently demonstrated a working concept that incoporates stereoscopic cameras and a 3D-capable display directly into a cellphone, allowing for a more lifelike rendition of the subject. The stereo cams work under the same principle as human eyesight, while a parallax barrier LCD display gives on-screen images more depth and robustness. The new camera setup and displays should start appearing on foreign handsets next year, by which time we'll hopefully be seeing 3 megapixel phones with optical zooms here in the technologically-backwards US.
