Heard this story on the way into work this morning.
Sounds like 3D view technology is about to take a
big jump. The story at NPR.

Sweet - thanks, Zwilnik! [Smile]

I kind of thought it ought to be that simple, but hadn't fully played 'connect the dots.' I think if I were really to do it, the key thing for me would be to make 'clip-ons' out of them, as I found the chunky plastic frames wildly uncomfortable over my very necessary glasses.

That being said, I also think 3D is a ripoff, so the only way I'd ever end up in another such film (the first & last was a review) would be through incredible peer pressure. [Razz]

Just an observation on all this debate about "3D television" and "3D cinema". I am 44 years old and every television I have ever watched has displayed programmes in 3D. Cinemas have been showing movies in 3D for over a hundred years.

X-axis, Y-axis and time.

Please resume your discussions using the term 4D where appropriate [Razz]

Well... prepare for your mind to be blown when you realize how much simpler it actually is:

ahem

I have no clue why anyone would go through the trouble of what those two idiots in the video did.

I think I actually have some of those kicking around somewhere from /years/ ago.

That thought crossed my mind as well, but I pondered whether the pesky 3D folks used some sort of proprietary nonsense that wouldn't be 'lined up the right way.' On second thought, that sounds kinda daft.

Thanks for the reminder - I'd be tempted to try it out (if I could find those stupid things), but I'm not about to shell out ~$20 for an unpleasant movie experience anytime soon. [Razz]
