Carnival Comics Brings 3D Comics to 5800sFiled Under Nokia 5800 Applications
Who says you need a fancy 3D panel to peek into the third dimension of entertainment? Your 5800 is all that you need and we aren’t kidding whatsoever. Carnival Comics bring 3D technology to your 5800s and 5800ers are among the first few to experience this 3D extravaganza on a mobile device!
At present the 3D technology comes at the cost of having to sport 3D glasses to catch the extra dimension, sans which it’s just a blurry image. This 3D comic is no different and you will have to invest in a pair of 3D glasses. The comics is free though, but is the investment in the 3D glasses, worth it? Let’s find out after the break.
If the above images appear murky, it’s only because they are in 3D and you are seeing them on a conventional 2D panel sans the 3D glasses. Put on your 3D glasses and you will get the feel of 3D, a rather mediocre version of 3D we would say. While we certainly cannot expect the 3D experience rendered by our 3D TV which cost us a bone and flesh, we think the whole 3D build-up to the comic strip is just a marketing gimmick and we wouldn’t have complained if they had just sticked with 2 dimensions.
What we like?
- Concept is definitely mind-blowing
What we don’t like?
- 3D content is not up to the mark
- 3D Glasses are rather an expensive investment (if you don’t already have them)
A lot of companies have been toying around the 3D concept on mobile platforms for quiet sometime now. There are a few games on iPhone platform as well but none have managed to click in this effervescent segment. At the end of the day not many would fancy carrying around a pair of 3D glasses just to be able to play or in this case read some content on their mobile devices. We think 3D content is best left to the bigger panels and the humongous cinema theaters for they make the 3D experience more worth while with the accompanying ambience and sound effects.
However, we do appreciate the effort put by Carnival Comics to bring 3D content to mobile phones and that too for free makes it a worthwhile download, especially if you have a pair of 3D glasses to spare!
