I've seen prototypes, and they're less than stellar. I am not a big fan of 3D, and think it just gives producers a reason to take away from the storyline within films and replace it with spiffy effects.

The reason nobody else has used the 3DS style tech was because you have to be looking straight-on, there's not a good side viewing angle?

What's the viewing angle on these?

I may just wait for hologram TV's...

Sounds more promising than alternating shutters, but if it comes down to a 21" TN 3D monitor for the same price as a 27" IPS...I'll be in the IPS line.

Avatar was a cinematic breakthrough of special effects, and used new techniques to achieve was has indeed been achieved in that movie. But alas, I believe that it's somewhat of a true fact that it does give directors/producers a reason to take away from the storyline, and just give us eye candy, which seems to work on the masses rather well, unfortunately.

Key things this needs: a good price, the ability to turn the effect off and one easily, and lastly it needs to have a good view range.

the problem ppl were saying about the 3DS was it had a small viewing angle/area that the 3D worked in. now for a small hand held device that is fine, but for a huge tv it could really be the deal breaker.

honestly i have no desire to watch things in 3D. the only good thing to come from this 3D craze is the development of true 120hz refresh on computer monitors =P

I would love to know exactly how they intend to do this. The only other displays I've seen attempted where ones that required your eyeballs to be in a very small space for the effect to work. You ~see~ 3D by your eyes viewing two different pictures and your brain actually putting them together. So you gotta give two separate images one per eyeball, or you gotta feed it directly into the brain. Ohh and you can't let the right eye see what the left eye is supposed to do and such, or it ruins the effect.

3D television reminds me of the video phone concept. Somewhere, sometime, someone decided that we all wanted video phones. We don't want video phones. We don't want people to see what we look like when we call in sick to work, or call to tell our significant other that we are working late when we are out for a drink, etc. Now someone decided we want 3D televisions. We don't want 3D televisions.

3d just gives me a headache.... i walked out of Avatar 3d half way through because of this... granted some effects look good (the ones before the movie, that demonstrate 3d) but still, the cropping issue when say 3d text hits the bezel or edge of screen then ruins the effect.. to me 3dtv is the next thing, now we have all bought hd flat screen tv's.... the manufacturers are hoping that we will ditch our not so old hdtv's and invest in 3dtv's, i for one will not be buying one... (it is a FAD)

Avatar wasn't bad in 3D. What really sucked right afterwards "Alice in Wonderland" in 3D didn't need to be done in 3D. It totally took away what the story is about.

Lucky the movie theater at the time gave us a choice of 2D or 3D.
