Boy, are people who spent all sorts of money on a 3D TV that requires glasses going to feel foolish before too long. With advances like Samsung's 55-inch glasses-free 3D TV, those glasses are going to become very expensive paperweights.
Your fancy 3D TV is really a far cry from 3D, only giving you two slightly different viewpoints of a single, flat scene to create the illusion of depth and being able to see around corners. A new system that uses multiple projectors and fog displays full color 3D images that you can walk all the way around.
So you think you're the next James Cameron. Good for you! But in order to create the next 3D Pandora, you're gonna need a 3D camera. This fancy JVC 3D camcorder should do the trick.
Because George Lucas just doesn't have enough money, he's releasing all six Star Wars movies back to theaters after converting them to 3D. And now the first one has a release date: February 10, 2012.
Excited about the third Transformers movie coming this summer in 3D? No? Well, maybe you will be once you see these ridiculous Transformers 3D glasses/helmets. Still no? Well, I tried.
The rumors were partly correct — the LG G-Slate has twin cameras for 3D photos and video recording as well as a 3D screen. Already mouthing off to your buds about its 3D overload? Don't forget to tell them the 8.9-inch screen tablet requires stereoscopic 3D glasses.
These days if you want a scoop on the latest tech news, you need to look in some pretty unlikely places. Last week we reported on a rumor that LG's upcoming G-Slate would have a 3D screen, and now it appears that a short glimpse of the tablet in a Korean K-pop video confirms the rumor.
Your cell phone may be the next platform to take advantage of glasses-free 3D displays, and a technology called Movidius is even able to take normal 2D images and video and transform them into 3D.
Like the HD-DVD vs Blu-ray format war, there are those who are for 3D and those against it. Back then, Sony positioned it's PlayStation 3 as a Blu-ray player first — a box that offered the highest quality movies that money could buy. That was in 2006. Today, the PS3 remains fundamentally the same, only this time Sony is telling you to take a leap of faith with 3D. DVICE was invited to test drive a few 3D PS3 games at a special event and I have to say, I walked away fairly shocked at how much 3D added to the overall gaming experience, despite my aversion to it.
Stereoscopic 3D (the kind with the glasses) is clunky and annoying and doesn't give you much besides a little bit of fake depth, no matter what all of those commercials featuring stuff jumping out of 3D TVs try to get you to believe. Holograms, on the other hand, are serious 3D. We're all waiting on 3D holographic TV, but in the mean time these holographic maps are pretty sick.
