Not the kind of 3D conversation we had in mind

We know the 3DS will have improved online capabilities, and we know it's capable of taking 3D photographs, but an interview between Forbes and Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has hinted at a combination of the two: online three-dimensional video chat.

Although Mr Iwata chooses his words carefully and never states such a feature is planned, he does say that a number of features are technologically possible, including 3D video chat. A 2D video chat feature has often been discussed for the existing DSi but is yet to materialise, but the potential of chatting with other 3DS features and sharing video of the world in 3D is a mouthwatering thought.
