Hi. You're new here huh? Oh yes, you are I see. Only two years. Allow me to introduce myself, I'm old and cranky. Not quite as old and cranky as some other posters like Ant, or the man who broke the forums. But still old.
Aaah, I see! This is actually a pissing contest! Because you've been here longer, you're cooler
than I am. How foolish of me. I bow to your longevity, cause that means... well, nothing, doesn't it? I've been reading the site pretty much since its inception - does that make me better
No we understand exactly what type it is. It's not polarized glasses, they're polarized shutter lenses. They've been around for years. The stuff that's been used in the theatres come in two flavors. Red/Green and Polarized.
So, you take it, plug it in. And you're still wearing something on your face. Now for those of us in humanity who wear glasses(yay?) and don't wear contacts(yay) for various reasons. This stuff is still terrible.
Er, what? As someone who wore glasses for years, and couldn't wear contact lenses, I had to put up with, gee, let me think, telescopes, microscopes and binoculars that were all 'incompatible' with me being a glasses wearer. But you know what? I got on with it - I didn't moan about them being shit technology simply because it was a 'slight' inconvenience to use. (I've had LASIK since, incidentally.)
Now sometime eventually it'll get to the point where no glasses are needed. The TFT stuff was a good step forward, but way too expensive.
Sure, and if my aunt had balls, she'd be my uncle! What I mean is, could you not just enjoy the spectacular 3D views for now, with this technology? (Again, in decent films such as Up etc. - I am aware it can be just a gimmick too...)
Maybe I should just use the /. idea. RTFA, because most of us did and you didn't.
Or maybe you could quit being an arrogant, cynical gobshite? I know I could do with that too, from time to time
Oh, and if my spies are correct (googling your username
), you're not old and cranky - you're under 30 for Chrissakes! Just wait for that hump This comment was edited on Dec 11, 2009, 07:13.
