    Aw man what a disappointment. I was hoping this would be like Nintendo's little game system that doesn't need glasses for real. I want that for my 55 inch TV.

    Those tvs have been out for a year at a steep price but the pricing is dropping so it'll hit more consumer friendly outlets. I believe Toshiba created it (they also created the DS screen). They were developed 2 years ago.

    It would be nice to view 3D without having to wear glasses. Since, I already have to wear glasses for distance.

    The problem with screens using a parallax barrier, such as the 3DS, is that they don't scale well. There are usually one, maybe a few "sweet spots" where the 3D effect works, but move off those spots by just a few degrees, and it breaks down.

    Right now, the best bet for 3D in home theaters is for manufacturers to develop passive tech, such as Real3D. I own an active 3D Panasonic plasma, but only have one pair of glasses because they cost $150! For a family of four, watching 3D movies would be more expensive than it's worth. With passive tech, you still have to wear glasses, but they are like the glasses in the big theaters and are a fraction of the cost.

    The future of 3D should be that you can only find it in museums.

    Too bad you have a Panny. I just picked up a pair for my Samsung for $49 each. I checked the site and they don't have any for panasonic or sony.

    I want the Holodeck already. Where do all the liquids go, that one might lose in a holodeck session anyway?

    They tried making 3D without glasses for TVs, but some people actually passed out in tests, due to the size of the screen.

    Yeah, I was NOT expecting this, lol. If people were worried about looking silly in those big glasses, I'd certainly take those over looking like I was freakin' the phok out.

    There was a development company in illinois that created a no screen tv using a weird version of Pepper's ghost with a clear "fog" to project on.

    I want to punch whoever thought 3D needed a comeback in the neck.
