Will 3D TV Ever Catch On?
from the do-we-want-it-to? dept
Like yesterday’s story about new film technologies, I have to wonder when people put a lot of effort into simply improving the quality of something most people think is “good enough” already. The NY Times (in their registration crazy way) have an article wondering if 3D TV will ever catch on. While there have been many experiments over the years, they’ve usually involved forcing people to wear funky glasses. Some new technologies are coming out that don’t require glasses, but that doesn’t change the basic question. Do people really want to watch TV in 3D? It’s a neat effect every once in a while, but if it starts showing up regularly, it’s likely to be considered overkill.
