Japan’s Macotakara blog cites sources as saying that Apple is ready to start producing small 3D panels akin to those made by, 9to5mac reports, based on a rough Google translation.

    The -centric blog speculates that such a rumor will undoubtedly make the high-ups at Nintendo restless, knowing that the Japanese giant is gearing up to introduce its Nintendo 3DS gaming system this week.
    As for the Macotakara report, it speculates that an upcoming iPod touch equipped with such a screen may also have a 3D integrated gaming interface, the ability to position and control a game using the Face Time camera, as well as face recognition.

    Apple heavily touts its iPod touch as a great gaming platform and pocket , in addition its media player capabilities. Recent iOS 4.3 SDK findings indicate that Apple is on track to adopt a new graphics solution for its devices, which enables both these rumors to fuel one another.
