Engadget partners with Magnetic 3D for reader meetup

Magnetic 3D, a provider of autostereoscopic, glasses-free 3-D displays and digital signage solutions, today announced that it has partnered with Engadget, a multilingual technology blog network with obsessive daily coverage of gadgets and consumer electronics, to deliver a glasses-free 3-D experience at their upcoming NYC Reader Meetup.

The free event is taking place on Thursday, Aug. 25, from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. at Guastavino’s, a New York City venue located at 409 E. 59th Street. Engadget editors will be on the premises along with friends from the Joystiq and TUAW blogs, a host of gadgets, giveaways and surprises.

In partnership with Engadget, Magnetic 3D said it has created “stunning” glasses-free 3-D visuals for the NYC Reader Meetup. Magnetic 3D’s creative content will be shown in a continuous loop for the duration of the event on a 42-inch Allura Enabl3D autostereoscopic LCD display installed in the venue. Magnetic 3D said its proprietary Enabl3D technology provides audiences with a realistic visual experience that includes both captivating off-screen “pop” and the immersive perception of depth on what would otherwise be a flat display.

“We are big fans of Engadget and are absolutely thrilled they wanted to include our technology at the Meetup,” said Michael Dorin, VP of business development and operations at Magnetic 3D, in the announcement. “Our innovative autostereoscopic displays have invisible optics built into them so viewers can see 3-D content without needing any special eyewear. The technology is hard to believe without seeing it in person, which is exactly why we are so excited to share this experience firsthand with our fellow Engadget fans. I am confident that it will contribute to the event’s innovative vibe.”
