Standardized 3D Glasses

Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and XPAND 3D have partnered to adopt a standard when it comes to 3D glasses.

In a joint statement, these companies stated that they “Will Seek Development of Joint Licensing on ‘BLUETOOTH® ENABLED RF’ and ‘IR’ Consumer 3D Active Glasses“.

A standardized version of these glassed are to be released next month whilst the full version, “with the new IR/RF protocols will be made available in 2012, and are targeted to be backward compatible with 2011 3D active TVs.”

Roger Ebert Hates 3-D Movies

On April 29th Roger Ebert posted his comments on the 3D film trend on his Newsweek column. And quite frankly I agree with most of what he had said.

3D appears to be a gimmick that Hollywood appears to think will make the consumer forget that their film plots are being recycled (ex. Dances With Tall Blue Aliens In Space).

So what if it pops out of the screen ?! There are limitations, especially when a person has astigmatism like yours truly. And I’m not about to pay more to become some beta tester.
