I thought the cable channel didn't require 3D glasses. Or maybe it's the "new" TV that doesn't. I haven't heard much on either front. It's out of my price range so it wasn't something I was going to get or will be getting anytime soon.

I don't think they've developed much for 3D without glasses. There might be some experimental things out there, but nothing in production. An certainly no product from a cable firm.

Never seen the channel myself. Was this your typical Anaglyph 3D imaging. i.e. Red / Blue color spectrum?

I do not know for sure. I believe the Red/Blue is way old technology and not used this go around for 3D

I think Avatar pretty much put the nail in the coffin for glyph glasses outside of, say, print (I do have a pair hanging by but that's because they were used in Doctor Who/Torchwood, which is incidentally when I stuck them up there).  It's such a lousy technology but for the longest time it's the only way you could do it across the board (the current glasses tech was used in IMAX screens but didn't go into regular theaters until Avatar).  But the problem is there's still no way to look at one place and see two different things at the same time without those filters, the two eyes have to be seeing two completely separate things and without the glasses you can't control that.

Of course, if we're going to get better 3D display tech we need better 3D tech, the Cameron Pace system is great but it's HUGE, the size and ease of use seriously needs to come down... once it's not a hinderance to use, we'll get more REAL 3D content (not that post-converted bulls*it) and then we'll have the drive to REALLY adopt new tech.

But even after that, the amount of 3D content will be a drop in a bucket to the amount of 2D content we have-- a hundred years of movies, 50+ years of TV, IPTV being created at an astounding rate... while I do like good movies in good 3D a the theaters, I think we can pretty much forget about it at home.

Top 10 Worst 3D Movies

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJOJ4hJGQb8

Most of what's on the list I never saw in 3D format. It's not something I would ever buy into now. Maybe in the 80's yeah, but today. Never. Personally I think JAWS 3D should have taken the #1 spot.

Just when I thought 3D was completely dead, there are still movie sites out there saying there is still life beating for them.

I don't see it.

I think we should talk briefly about another fad that will come and go... Curved Screen Television

Maybe it was Neumatic then. Could have sworn someone on here was into Curved TV. I dunno. I'm too busy staring at the Top 10 Worst 3D Movies Video Thumbnail.  ;D

Keep that s hit up and you're going to break it right off.

Like my buddy told me when I was 10, you only have so many you can do (1,000 I think) and then it quits working.

Uh... you're counting? How are we doing that? scribing little nicks on your balls?

Figured you would run out of room way before now.

Speaking of balls...

Last night, our little dog was on the couch licking itself. I looked down and said "Showoff".

My wife... deer in headlights.

I was surprised this got past my wife. Almost daily, we have the running joke

Me: Oh.... Blow me.
Her: Blow yourself
Me & Her in unison: I would if I could

and she missed the above joke.  :-\
