I'm not into curved TVs, I think it's nuts that we spent ALL this time getting our screens flat, to just curve them the other way.  The only time a screen HAS to be curved is if it will fill your entire range of vision (like a gaming chair, big monitor, or a giant cinema screen).   Also, I believe the image has to be cut or distorted for the curve to work, if you watch movies on the big big big screen, you'll notice parts at the top and bottom being cut off.

But for most people, the curved TV will just replace the flat TV on their walls and stick out, they won't be used to their maximum effectiveness, I think, because the people rich enough to afford them are also smart/old enough to sit far away from the screen to avoid eyestrain.

3D movies on flights in 3 years

Airbus 's revamped A330 Neo planes will have new in-flight systems enabling passengers to watch 3D films in the air

As in most things, Iíll take a wait and see attitude. Iíve been wrong on occasion. Iíll put it here in 3D, though it could also go in ĎBoeingí, because Airbus being a competitor. Airbus is doing some strange things (at least according to me), so maybe they are genius or freaking nuts. I do have a more plane related article to post.

Airline passengers will be able to watch 3D movies in the sky on board a new fleet of Airbus jets within three years, reports Variety.
The revamped A330 Neo will boast an in-flight system featuring stereoscopic capability for the first time. The first planes are expected to be delivered to airlines in 2017.
It is not yet clear whether the system being adopted will rely on special glasses, or will be built to work without them. Manufacturers of 3D screens have long suggested it is only a matter of time before the eyewear becomes redundant in the event of new technologies. Sharp showed off a prototype glasses-free TV at the Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show in January.
The A330 Neo's in-flight entertainment will also boast improved high-definition video, along with faster Wi-Fi and improved mobile connectivity using 4G technology.
Airbus launched the new model, which will compete with Boeing 's Dreamliner plane, on 14 July at the Farnborough international air show. The group expects to sell at least 1,000 planes over the next few years.

How about Oculuses so we forget were in a tiny flying tin can crammed together like sardines?

Tangent to the discussion of Oculus's, Oculusssses, Ocu-, that thing, there has been lots of innovative idea's of Video Screen as windows (or the floor for that matter). Essentially, instead of a window, you have the video screen and then multiple camera's outside the plane. You might ask why, why not just look out? They go into further discussion of displaying views you can't normally see. Something as simple as viewing the Right Hand side if you're on the left. Or directly below the plane. Or maybe projecting something virtual all together. You're over the ocean... display flying over the Grand Canyon, a volcano, etc. I know this has a ring of Total Recall, but still. I think there are ton of innovations possible with the current air flight business.

How 'bout we just go back to the inspired invention from the 70's and just give us All- n u d e  Flight attendants, passengers, Lava Lamps and Bean Bags? I'd be happy to travel again if they offered that! The kicker....all of them are REAL 3D!

They'd have to be be d*mn good looking flight attendants.  I doubt Summer Glau's unknown twin sister would be on the same flight as either of us.
