John Paul DeJoria, the famous billionaire businessman philanthropist, began the presentation stating the company was connecting the World through international WiFi and the new smartphone 3D technology is all new and innovative and the show will speak for itself. He explained that the new technology is nothing like the past that required the use with 3D glasses. There was a movie presentation that was shown with the old 3D glasses on the big screen and then the new ROKiT 3D smartphones were distributed to all the guests in the theatre to immediately view the same 3D presentation without the need for 3D glasses on the brand new 3D ROKiT IO PRO 3D Smartphones.


Patented 3D technology the ROKiT IO PRO 3D and ROKiT IO 3D play stereoscopic side by side videos allowing content to jump out of the screen for immersive enjoyment.

Guests and Media were all in awe and impressed with the ROKiT 3D Smartphone presentation. During the 3D ROKiT smartphone viewing the rose petals in the content viewing just trickled off the screen right at you, and the sports figures throwing the ball right at you, everyone present viewing was wowed by the new views of the 3D technology right from the ROKiT smartphone.


Select media had the opportunity to privately interview with both founders; John Paul DeJoria said they were developing the project for nearly 13 years to get the 3D technology just right. It took many years of development to get it to this point and over one hundred million dollars. The new technology is a combination of both 3D and 2D technology in the viewing process to enable viewers to see the depth and ratio accurately.
