by Reads (1,165)

Amazon LogoThe rumors about the Amazon’s hardware endeavors are heating up, with the latest reports indicating that the company may be working on a smartphone with a glasses-free 3D display.

The display would use “retina-tracking technology,” according to a recent report from the Wall Street Journal, to create visuals that appear to float above the screen, much like a hologram. Also, the eye-scrolling technology that was supposed to make its debut on the Samsung Galaxy S IV (before ultimately getting left out of the final product) may be used on Amazon’s smartphone.

And the 3D-enabled smartphone may not be the only new hardware that the online retailer has in the pipeline, with reports indicating that Amazon is working on a total of two smartphones, a set-top box, and an “audio-only streaming device.” The WSJ said that the devices, which are under development at Amazon’s Lab126 facility in Cupertino are dubbed “Project A, B, C, and D” and are collectively known as the “Alphabet Projects.”
