No Glasses 3D Tablet from Hammacher Schlemmer could do with a better name

Hammacher Schlemmer is selling a new No Glasses 3D Tablet for $349.95, probably one of the last straggling remnants of the 3D craze which did not revolutionize entertainment. The tablet in question does not require users to wear special glasses in order to experience visuals in 3D; that’s why it’s called No Glasses 3D tablet.

The device has a touchscreen of 8 inches and 1280 x 800p resolution spread across its front. There’s a parallax panel over it which beams different sets of pixels to each eye in order to deliver the 3D effect. Detection of 2D and 3D content takes place automatically and regular video can be played out in such a way that it appears to be 3D.

The slate runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and there’s no mention of RAM or the embedded processor. However, there is 16GB of in-built memory as well as support for microSDHC cards or flash drives. A basic 2MP camera is perched on the rear panel, while seated above the display is a 0.3MP webcam.

Users should be able to squeeze upwards of 5 hours from the battery after charging it for approximately 2 hours. The tablet’s dimensions read 5.5 x 8.5 x 0.4 inches and it tips the scales at 1 pound. It looks like the manufacturing company will be throwing in a wireless keyboard case for the aforesaid price.

The No Glasses 3D Tablet is expected to start shipping at the end of this month. There’s nothing about the manufacturer, leaving us to assume it’s a Made in China product.
