    Is this **** a joke?

    Who honestly wants to wear glasses to watch TV?

    And what if you have glasses already?

    Might be the dumbest thing I've seen in a long, long time.

    I am thankful for 1 thing though. As soon as these companies start popping this garbage out, the price of regular TVs should go down a bit because they can't do 3D.

    When I first heard about 3D TV it didn't seem like something that would just take off to me. I'm sure there are those who will love it and buy it. But I just can't see 3D TV being widely popular.

    Yeah the whole glasses thing is dumb. I want tv to be effortless.

    Now I gotta find my remote AND TV glasses? No thanks.

    most tvs you buy today are '3D ready' so if you bought a middle to top of the line plat screen in the past year or so you already have the technology most likely so when things start coming out or being broadcast in 3D its just up to you if you want the 3D experience.

    i cant find it but i saw a video of a japanese company that has made basically hologram tv, where the actors and scenery was in the living room but it isnt cost effective or practical cause you pretty much have to have no light in the room.

    Why would this be a joke? People where glasses at the movies, why can't they wear them at home (Especially since the TVs work better than the theater IMO)? Are glasses that big of an inconvenience? I mean really?? The major success of 3D movies at the theater is all you need to konw to realize this is in no way a joke.

    Now 3D will never be the main form of viewing content, but nobody is pushing it as such. There is definitely a market for this, and the applications for gaming will be quite significant. And the cost of TVs is not going to be affected by this (Yes, the 3D TVs are pricey, but not because they are 3D, but because they are top end units regardless of the 3D - the additional 3D cost may be $100-$200 and in a year or 2 every TV will be capable.

    I'll definitely be picking up a 3D TV later this year (when there is more content and a better selection of TVs) and I'll be using it as an opportunity to update my entire setup as well as redo my floors and rearrange my living room.

    Note: The 3D-ready TVs aren't as capable as some may think.

    I was in the Sony store this weekend and tried it. Pretty cool experience. But yeah, having to constantly pop on bulky glasses every time you want to watch TV would get really old.

    Why buy a 3D TV that requires glasses when models that don't require glasses are on the way?

    I must say watching the Boys in 3D on Sundays would be pretty damn sweet.

    I think it's cool, I'm not in a rush to get one at all, but I can imagine Planet Earth in 3D, it'd be amazing.

    It's not as if it turns everything 3D.

    Just like flat screens, LCD's, wireless internet on laptops, and sending stupid little 160 character messages on phones that can call across the planet with perfect clarity.

    Oh, and the internet. No real point to that at all.

    3D TV is a new revolution and expands the sensory experience of shows. It's the next big thing IMHO, until they can produce TV's that produces smells that go along with the scenes.

    yeah i saw it a few years ago, what sucks is that it can only be for one person because if you view it from a different angle than the person playing it doesnt look right because the game isnt reacting to you

    I, for one, welcome back the 1980's. Good times.
