Panasonic has unveiled the world’s first consumer 3D video camcorder, the HDC-SDT750.

More recently, Reggie Fils-Aime confirmed the existence of the Nintendo 3DS, pointing toward a glasses-free 3D portable gaming experience. Will Sony do the same with its PSP or PSPgo? It’s very possible, because Sony is already working with 3D video.
