that don't need special glasses
A new generation of 3D mobile phones that don't require special glasses, could go on sale by the end of this year.
Japanese electronics manufacturer Sharp unveiled a new three-inch liquid crystal display screen that played 3D animations over the weekend.

The company also showed off a touch-panel screen that could flick from one 3D photo to another and a display connected to a camcorder that showed video it was taking in 3D.
The new technology is expected to be incorporated into mobile phones, electronic dictionaries and digital cameras in Japan from as early as September.
It comes as manufacturers look for the next 3D market following the success of movies such as Avatar and Alice in Wonderland.
Meanwhile satellite TV company Sky has just launched Europe's first 3D TV channel, screening a clash between Chelsea and Manchester United in pubs around London.

Both the films and Sky TV require glasses that show different images to the right eye and the left eye to create the 3D effect.
However, the Sharp screen shows 3D images to a user up to 12 inches away without such glasses.
They achieve this using parallax to display different images to each eye to give the illusion of three dimensions while retaining image clarity.
The electronics company has been working on 3D product development since 2002 but earlier efforts suffered from poor picture resolution and brightness.

Sharp's LCD manager Yoshisuke Hasegawa said the company was now in talks with phone makers over using their latest technology. He added that they expected the next-generation of mobiles to all be equipped with 3D screens.
However, Mr Hasegawa wouldn't confirm reports that Sharp will equip video game giant Nintendo's upcoming DS console due out next spring, which will feature games in 3D.
