3D TV ,, Is the consumers ready for that

I always doubt if there is any enough conusmer base ready for this. Before actually this technolgy is taken to individual consumers, the 3D TV makers should actually cosnider promoting the technology in a different market segments like huge displays in shopping malls. I've also recently seen the LG promotion with light weight glassess and very good viewing feel of their 3D TV's. Do any one actually experienced this ..

Have investigated just a bit more and found, according to specialized players as MedixExchange.com, 3D TV or imaging is in effect a worldwide market. Its size was estimated about 4billion US$ by 2012. Maybe, while we are still waiting definitive launch and success for endusers, the only 3D sector with similar market's size can be home gaming. Personally, in the short-medium term, I don't see other directions.

Well, I trust your point of view in particular speaking about end users. Even it wasn't main focus of editorial from Barbara, I believe 3D movie and similar technologies could bring strong help in other sectors, medical imaging for example. Such kind of feature shall potentially represent a worldwide application of 3DTV if we consider distance healthcare or telemedicine.

I do not think 3D has gotten any world wide acceptance. Where glasses before you can enjoy the taste of a product is irrelivant to me as a person. We do not have enough time to hang around a device and kitting up. For the people taht have time and derive pleasure in it.... it may be a top nouch! Cost is another whip that scares away the customers.

Discussions on 3D have started a long ago and researches as well. It seems first 3D film presentation has been held at the beginning of past century. I enclose the link for your interest, it is very amazing. http://www.3dgear.com/scsc/movies/firsts.html

Having said that, 3D market is not ramping at all; comparing other sectors (i.e. mobile devices and so on), we are still using a primitive technology (glasses) to watch 3D movies; it is a matter of end users costs or people are not interested in 3D due to consolidate feeling with traditional "aspect ratio"?

I agree that might be a useful application of 3D Tv any way. Time will reveal more use of it, lets wait and see.

you are right, the world of entertaiment is what bind us all together the most at one time or the other and then people tend to spend so much to get entertained.I think it,s in our nature as human being.

I'm normally all for new fangled technology, especially if it  has the possibility to improve the lot of every day folks.

Recently I was in the market for a new TV, having used the same good o'l CRT Toshiba for the last 15 years, unfortunately the cost in tax & per KG shipping charges for re-exporting it out of China did not justify keeping the pre-century Leviathen.

So off I toggled down to  the local Hong Kong TV store with my hands full with wads of sweaty cash, only to find that it would not go quite as far as if I were purchasing a  CRT device.

3D sets abound in a Hong Kong TV retailer, complete with settee and wheel able sets so that the merits of each can be judged without ever moving from the seat, even the goggles came with their own  solid cast iron stand, so that the exact position and distance could be calculated from the set.(unfortunately the stands were not part of the kit, but were supplied by the manufacturers to ensure that absolutely the best viewing angles could be experienced)

As can be expected once the goggles were removed, the pictures displayed extensive ghosting, which was far to distracting to enable any sort of enjoyment without the goggles.

Moving onto the sets that had 3D technology 'built in' via the use of some cleaver angled plastics within the display ,so that the pictures could be offset source,  even with the added pleasure of ensuring my wife needed to be sat on my lap during TV viewing to ensure that the viewing pleasure remained consistent, the sets were ruled out.

Finally I settled on a Sharp LED digital set,  with no goggles and no 3D functions, just basic 1080 HD viewing.

Apart from the first set they delivered being defective (no 'red' LED's for 25% column of the screen), I have been really impressed with the technology, and even with 1080 HD, the picture seems to be  more 'real' than an ordinary CRT or LCD monitor , and with it being LED I do not have any stupidity with situations of the  Sun shining through the window  and flooding the picture. 

To top it all off, the Instruction manual informs me that the TV is running Linux as the underlying OS, with U-Boot and a number of other Open software solutions (source code available on the Sharp website), which would indicate that the set is 'hackable', with the possibility of adding extra peripherals via the external USB port. (network/ WiFi, external storage etc)

So If TV's have come this far in less than a Decade, I think I will hold on before buying my next set, which may finally include 'real' 3D

Yeah, and i was also thinking 3D presentations. i don't know if they have them

I"m sure getting a set of investors to wear 3D glasses in a show room to showcase a 3D view of a project like a building or a new gadget will not be asking too much.

I think you are right. Another use that occurs to me is medical, although I know x-ray and MRI already use 3D in a different fashion.
