Wake me when they get holograms, and not shitty ones like they have now.

Only way I see it ever catching on. Those with visual impairments will see it, and your eyes won't constantly be harshly adjusting focus.

3DTV sales are still climbing, due to being built into nearly every set these days, but no one is using them in 3D.

I'd say the "slow motion train wreck continues" sidenote would fit better with the 3D article, Blue.

Not sure if you assumed I was, but just in case - I wasn't talking about you killer_roach. I don't want to mention names because I have the person in question on my ignore list so I consider it bad form to call him out like that. He knows who he is.

Wasn't sure, but I thought I should be clear just in case. (After all, I'm pretty sure I'd remember saying something along those lines.)

I see the world in 3D, which is enough. 2D entertainment is plenty for me. I'm laughing at the crazy predictions our self-proclaimed resident biz expert here on Blues made about how 3D TV-viewing would soon be ubiquitous. Of course, like Michael Pachter, being wrong doesn't serve as much of a deterrent.

Don't recall ever thinking 3D would become ubiquitous... at best, I've thought that 3D-capable TVs might become ubiquitous, but that's simply an analog of the display panels getting higher refresh rates and not demand for the feature.

We're a lot closer now, glasses-free 3D sets exist but still have their own issues like cost and viewing angle. It'll happen.
It's just a fad. There are way too many people with vision issues for it to ever be taken seriously. What does it add to the viewing experience?

I just picked up the Avenger 3D. When the tech gets cheap enough I'll have something decent to watch. (It came with a regular 2D BRD too).
I still have not seen The Avengers movie. Dang old BUSY lives.

I happen to believe 3D is as important a step as going to color was. The problem is the tech is simply not ready yet. Anything with glasses is a pain in the ass. Any screen which causes (extra) eye strain is a pain in the ass. Until they work out those kinks and make it as cost affordable as a 2D set I'm fine with it staying niche.
The problem is 3D has been around for many decades. We still have to wear lame glasses today!

But will I be able to see 3D?

I didn't know Kodak was still around, thought they were existing on marginal income from pattens.

Not at all interested in 3D, not for games and not for watching movies.

I didn't even know Kodak made inkjet printers. :O

I can't see 3D, with my old compound eyes, so I care not about it.
