Who Said 3D is Just for the Movies?


3D has always been something that you see in the movies or on the occasional TV special, but not anymore. Sony has come up with a TV (to be released sometime in 2010) that lets you see in 3D! So far this TV is just for movies but Sony is working to expand 3D viewing to video games, Blu-ray discs, 3D production equipment, laptops, and to PlayStation 3 systems. To view 3D on this TV a pair of glasses (that look identical to a pair of sunglasses) must be worn. These glasses use a shutter technology to allow you to see the images in 3D. Shutter technology simply means that there are tiny shutters in the glasses that open and close at an accelerated rate producing the 3D image. How cool would it be to turn on the TV in your living room and watch whatever you wanted in 3D? Playing a video game in 3D would be so awesome; it would be as if you were right there in the middle of the action! This technology really opens up a whole new door to what is to come in the future for home viewing technologies. With the rate technology is going these days, who knows what they’ll come out with next!?
