“When you look at a photo of the Grand Canyon on a screen, you can’t peek around it and see what it’s like on the other side – simply put, photos have a fixed perspective,” explained Mayank Mehta, head of products at Cooliris.

A new application, i3D is bringing a technology called Head Coupled Perspective (HCP) to bring. Basically how the application works is the front facing camera on the device tracks the users head movements and adjusts the image accordingly creating the illusion of looking into a box. On a side note, Google introduced a similar technology for Ice Cream Sandwich at this months I/O event.
