NVIDIA's 3D Push

NVIDIA announces 3DTV Play, an initiative with Panasonic to take 3D technology on the road, showing how to bring 3D to the living room via NVIDIA hardware. This is how they are getting in on the ground floor of the home 3D revolution that Hollywood and others are convinced is upon us. Word is: "3DTV Play software lets you connect any compatible NVIDIA GeForce GPU-powered PC or notebook to 3D TVs for the ultimate, high-definition, big-screen, 3D entertainment experience. By leveraging the processing power of NVIDIA GeForce GPUs, 3DTV Play software delivers the best the PC has to offer: play hundreds of standard PC games in stunning 3D environments such as World of Warcraft - Wrath of the Lich King, Battlefield Bad Company 2, and James Cameron's Avatarô: The Game. You can also watch upcoming Blu-ray 3Dô Hollywood blockbusters, view digital 3D photographs, and even watch streaming 3D movies for the ultimate viewing party. The active-shutter glasses bundled with each VIERA full HD 3D TV sold work seamlessly with NVIDIA GPUs and off-the-shelf PC gaming titles and other 3D entertainment content."

That is quite impressive and cheap to implement.
As an added point of interest, Johnny Chung Lee now works for Microsoft on Project Natal.

I don't blame Microsoft there. Damn impressive adaptation of inexpensive hardware.

Also, this NVIDIA 3d thing costs something like 2-3000 dollars to get into at entry level.

The PS3 can probably push it, but if you want to watch 3d movies, you'll have to toss out your current blu-ray player and get a *new* one, as well as a TV that can display. At the moment, I believe they are like 800 bucks for the player and 2k or so for the TV. You get one pair of glasses, and each extra pair is a minimum of 80-100 dollars.

It's probably pretty pimp software, but I just don't see it being any more than a niche...
