There's a physical limit to the number of magnetic bits that you can stuff onto a given area on a traditional hard drive, and we're pretty close to it right now. For hard drives to get bigger without getting, you know, bigger, we're going to have to get creative, and one research team has done this by taking hard drives into the third dimension.
3D glasses are just so annoying and stupid, aren't they? That's why Toshiba has made 3D literally twice as awesome by condensing all the magic of the third dimension into... Wait for it... The Spectacle.
Back in December, we saw some of Zebra Imaging's impressive full-color holographic prints. With funding from DARPA, Zebra has been able to develop and electronic version of the same technology, embodied in an actual glasses-free 3D holographic projector table.
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.
