By YURI KAGEYAMA, AP BUSINESS WRITER — “Users won’t need special glasses to view the three-dimensional images that pop up from Japanese electronics maker Sharp Corp.’s new laptop.

The Mebius PC-RD3D, billed by Sharp as the world’s first 3-D laptop, goes on sale Oct. 27 in Japan and is planned for release later this year in the United States.

The new laptop is mostly targeted for people who design three-dimensional software, but Sharp is also planning a model for average consumers, company spokeswoman Miyuki Nakayama said Thursday.

Tokyo-based Sharp has been selling cell phones with 3-D displays for NTT DoCoMo, Japan’s top mobile carrier, since November last year. They were so popular the feature is being introduced in notebook computers, Nakayama says.”
