    I finally got to watch Coraline 3D last night. I went to this movie after being chastised and told that this new 3D that movies have been coming out in wasn't my old-timer Red/Blue 3D, and boy was I wrong.

    Coraline looked amazing. No color distortion and depth that you could almost touch. Now I will only watch movies in 3D if the option is available. I tried removing the glasses from time to time to see what was happening on the screen and to determine if this could be replicated at home on HDsets.

    So anyone familiar with the process to state whether this stuff would be possible at home or not? I'd hate to think that I would never be able to see Coraline like this again.

    I've wondered about this as well. Are the glasses they give you powered in any way? What did the screen look like without them on?

    EDIT: check this out http://entertainment.howstuffworks.com/question360.htm- they must use the polarization technique. Doesn't sound like this will be coming home anytime soon.

    The glasses are pretty much clear, though you can tell that they have some material in there that adds to the effect. Without the glasses, things up close look clear, while things in the background look out of focus and shifted. Going to read the article you posted.

    All I know is the effect is really nice.

    edit: so the question is, can imaged on an LCD be polarized.

    There does exist a television that can produce a 3-D image without glasses.

    I spent about a half hour starting at such a TV while I was in the lobby of a company that was promoting their latest 3-D film by playing the trailer on a loop on it.

    It is amazing, but it apparently will not mass market ready for some time.

    Yes, but getting shot by Helghans outside really hurts.

    I dunno about paying 1k for a PS3D, but I would almost pay 100 if a game like Oblivion supported true 3D.
