Aigo preps glasses-free 3D tablet because Avatar demands it

Make no mistake about it, 3D is an industry darling (despite its gimmicky implementation). The feature, incorporated in everything from movies to TVs to video game consoles, is now taking a trip over to the wild, wild west of tablet design. Coupling the tech with Google's latest device agnostic OS -- Ice Cream Sandwich -- Chinese manufacturer Aigo is prepping to release its own glasses-free 3D Pad that utilizes a high-res LCD display similar to Nintendo's 3DS, letting users turn the effect on and off. No pricing or concrete launch plans have been announced outside of a planned February 2012 bow. But after next week's CES reveals, the tab's sure to find itself in plentiful company.
