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.
In an iPod and iPhone world, hasn't the personal media player (PMP) already gone the way of the dodo? Korea's Cowon, purveyors of endless PMPs is looking to follow in Nintendo's footsteps and help kick-start the glasses-free 3D movement with the Cowon 3D.

At last, someone decided enough is enough and decided to actually incorporate a little style and design into a pair of 3D glasses. Gucci's fashion gurus are taking 3D eyewear to the next level with these retro-80s 3D glasses. Designers — take notes!
We've had body fat scanning technology for a long time. It's called a mirror. If you want to get fancy, though, then you get this body volume index machine, a new 3D scanner that not only analyzes your amount of body fat, but where it is. Where it is could make all the difference.
If you're planning to go see the upcoming Tron Legacy in theaters, you're gonna need 3D glasses to get the full experience. And sure, you could just use the crappy ones that they give everyone, but is that what a true fan would do? I don't think so.
If you think shoving 3D in every piece of gadgetry is the way to go this year, you may be right. This cellphone is one of the first non-smartphones that we've seen that supports 3D without glasses. Oh and it's super cheap!
