Sony's Vaio S refresh in Europe will also bring an add-in 3D film.
Whether or not consumers want it, companies are still pushing virtual 3D as the next big thing.
The holy grail is now to deliver it sans glasses, something that Nintendo has achieved for its 3DS, and Toshiba managed to upscale for its latest Qosmio, albeit not in Australia. Even the TV companies are starting to figure out how to do it for big screens, although we'd imagine that it will take a while for the price to come down there.
Never one to pass up a feature parade, Sony has shown off a glasses-free Vaio at the IFA Trade Show in Berlin, but with a twist. Rather than having native support built into the screen, the 3D is enabled by placing a 3mm lenticular film in front of the monitor, and pairing software with the laptop's webcam to figure out where you are in relation to the screen.
It's expected to go on sale for €129 in Europe in October, launched at the same time as Sony's updated Vaio S laptops. But let us know, dear readers — would you fork out so much money for the benefit of wonky parallax and eye strain on your laptop?
