Everybody knows the latest craze for 3D is just the most recent take on a technology that's been around since the '50s. But did you know 3D tech existed more than 40 years before that? This stereoscope, which arrived in the DVICE offices yesterday, is the proof.
Mice have traditionally been two-dimensional creatures, offering an easy way to navigate around flat and boring desktops. Now that 3D is a new buzzword and everybody (and their parents) are cruising around Google Earth, it's time to take advantage of all those extra degrees of freedom.
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!
This year's tech trend is all about 3D TVs, movies, and videogames. Next year's trend looks to still be 3D — just without the silly glasses (hello Nintendo 3DS)! Toshiba wants in on that fat pie — the Japanese consumer electronics giant is planning to release a 3D laptop that works sans glasses.
You haven't seen 3D, even in a movie theater, until you've seen it through Runco's new D-73d projection system. And you probably won't ever see it since the projector costs $50,000. But if you happen to have that much spare cabbage laying around, you could buy yourself a 3D HDTV to end all 3D HDTVs.
Sharp last night unveiled its 3D Aquos Quattron HDTVs, each of which comes with not one but two pairs of 3D glasses. But these are not ordinary 3D glasses. If you double-tap the power button, you can watch a 3D program in 2D. And that's a great idea. Here's why.
If I had $100,000, I would put most of it into savings, pay off my credit card bills, buy some nice furniture and go out for a lavish meal. But hey, not everybody likes the same things, which is why the Runco SC-60d projector has a $98,995 pricetag.
