If software developers are to be believed, patrons of mobile casinos will soon be in for an amazing new gameplay experience, in full 3D! Using advanced Austereoscope graphics display technology could make the first 3D games available as early as 2013, although they will most probably be restricted to iPhones and Android-powered smartphones at first.
Current display technology is already impressive enough, but being able to play casino games in 3D-rendering will without doubt add an exciting new aspect to mobile casino gambling. Just imagine that you’re in a Blackjack room, for example. With that new technology you’d be able to zoom in on your cards, those of your fellow players and your dealer’s. Using your touchscreen you could also pan the screen, have a look at avatars of the other players at the table. Basically, it would create an almost life-like atmosphere, almost like you’d be physically present in a land-based casino.
Industry sources assert that in order to enjoy this new experience, players won’t need to wear special goggles either, like the ones currently necessary to view 3D-movies in theatres. Instead, Austereoscope will create two different images of the respective casino room at source, interlacing them. A special Austereoscope app that needs to be downloaded and installed on the respective smartphone will then render the interlaced pictures into a 3D-image on the screen.
Whether the new technology will work as expected and whether it will in fact catch on with mobile casino gamblers around the world remains to be seen. If it does, the gambling community can look forward to exciting times. Now all that really is needed is software that allows you to order a cocktail while you’re engaged in your game. And you know what? We half expect that already might be in the pipeline.
