    Sounds like this is only in development. Wonder when it will be available and when I would be able to watch Avatar on my iPad in 3D! Now that is what I want!!!!!!!!!

    You know what the real trick would be? Engaging he front and rear cameos for augmented reality games. It's to bad there isn't a secondary IR camera like in the Kinect to pull some depth/distance tracking.

    I did notice that all of the examples were of stationary objects. I'm not sure if 'motion' can be obtained.

    Sure it can with enough rendering power. The head tracking is giving the rendering engine it's perspective. The trouble comes because unlike a stationary viewpoint it has to render everying all over the screen every time you move, especially moving objects.

    Obviously we won't see Infinty Blade or Real Racer level graphics but something simpler like the tech demo games on the 3DS would do just fine.
