How the 3DS Works

In a nut shell:

* 1 Two 2D images taken from a slightly different perspective
* 2 Both are emitted from the 3DS’s screen
* 3 The left image and the right image occupy every other vertical column of pixels
* 4 The images are then directed out of the screen by the parallax barrier
* 5 Where they hit the eyes and are combined into a single 3D image

*Note, My E3 footage is used in this video for about :30, you can see WiiNintendo’s Hattrick at the 3:11 mark
