3DS specs hinted by Iwata

Comments hint at 3D tech to be used

Satoru Iwata's recent comments have led commentators to believe that Sharp's 3D parallax technology will power the new 3DS.

Speaking to Forbes magazine, Iwata told of how the 3D technology on the 3DS could be switched on and off to alleviate the concerns over children's eyesight.

The ability to switch the 3D functions on and off at the touch of a button seems to tally with the specifications of Sharp's 3D parallax technology.

The claims that the 3DS will not require glasses to view in 3D further cements the theory that the Sharp technology will be at the heart of the new handheld. All will be revealed at this year's E3.
