Palm Top Theater is a playful analog extension for the iPhone. Like a modern version of the old Pepper’s ghost technique it converts the 2D display into a layered 3D view by placing a half silvered mirror at a 45-degree angle in front of an image. The Palm Top Theater experience lets the users enjoy 3D moving images in the palm of their hands without glasses or other gear - the iPhone becomes a private mini-theater.
Palm Top Theater supports a wide range of applications and media formats, from videos, music clips and animations to interactive works that use the iPhone sensor technology.
The contents will be accessible for download via the Palm Top Theater browser app, which will be available in the Apple App Store. Submitted contents will go through an small internal jury process.
All information on how to make content and further procedures will also be available on the product's website www.palmtoptheater.com. The website will go online late June / early July at the latest.
Produced by Palm Top Theater B.V., which is a joined venture between Foundation DIRECTIONS (JP) and Palm Top Media Foundation (NL).
