3D TV? What do you think?

It may seem like the next big thing in home entertainment, but I seriously have doubts about it. It requires glasses to watch and if you lose them you have to look for them! :arghh:
Sounds very annoying to me because I always lose things. What do you think?
 
The glasses shouldn't be a problem for long. You can already get 3D without the glasses (it works by putting the stereoscopic 3D glass over the top of the actual TV screen - as opposed to wearing glasses with it in) but isn't available on the market yet.

My concern would more be from a health point-of-view and whether it could eventually hurt/strain your eyes - especially when used with computers because I spend endless hours using them, which isn't healthy in itself.

That is cool! I don't know when I am ever going to get a TV (I only really want to watch movies, so I just use my computer for now) but I think the whole 3D thing is really neat.
 
My wife and I recently went to the cinema to watch Tron, recently as in a month or two :p

At the start of the movie there is a disclaimer that some of the scene's were shot in 2D and that this was intentional.

Firstly I should state that, as far as 3D movies go, it was the best done for being accurate. I find many 3D movies just don't look right, as especially in fast scene's. It's as if each image becomes out of sync and the 3D effect either partially breaks or fully breaks. This didn't happen once in Tron.

With that said, it was near impossible to tell the difference between the 2d and 3d scene's without removing your glasses to see if the screen was blurry or not.

2D pictures provide a lot of depth information and I think movie producers underestimate this.

I think if 3D is to be sucessful, movies should not focus on producing screens that are in perfect 3D. But they should use the ability to use 3D images as a plot device, or to get a cheap 'jump' from the crowd as the car comes out of the screen to hit them.

I remember that "Sin City" was mostly in black and white and that they used colour to represent smell. This would also be a good use for 3D. Imagine a sherlock holmes movie and when he is looking for clues it goes to a first-person perspective. Everything Sherlock focuses on, becomes 3D with the rest of the screen as 2D.

I don't think there's a healthy issue with the glassless 3D TV sets. I think the news about possible health issues is just companies being "Prudent". They can't be blamed for trouble, if people are warned of "dangers".
 
Being a techie geek, I totaly get the appeal of the whole 3D thing, but I HATE IT!!!! I have found that I watch more of the background of shows and my central focus is not the center of the screen...so, 3D always seems out of focus to me in a relaxed state...and I don't enjoy having to concentrate on looking at the center of the screen to get the best view. Unfortunately for me, it looks like it is going to be the next big thing and I'll just have to adapt.
 
At this point, I'm still satisfied with my high definition TV shows. I actually am not the biggest fan in the world of technology and I seem to become less and less interested in it as time goes by.
 
I haven't watched TV on a 3D TV yet but the 3D effects on the Nintendo 3DS are cool. :)
 
A guy I know has a 40 inch 3D TV. It wasn't exactly cheap. I've only seen Avatar in 2D, so I want him to let me watch it in 3D on his TV.

Even 2D movies look more lifelike on his TV.

I wouldn't bother getting one for myself, at least until the price comes down by at least half.
 
I'd hold back on this one.

The new HD varient is due out next year and the in 2016 Holographic is due for release :D looks awesome
 
I hate it. I also hate how they doing so many 3D's movies these days. It does not feel natural to me and does not add the experience for me. It makes it worse. But that just me.
 
I have a 3D Tv and I love it but I found out quickly not all 3d movies are made to the same standards.

Some are breathtaking while others are largely 2D with small amount of 3D.

Also don't buy 2D films that have been processed to offer 3D, its not the same.

You have to be more or less in front of the telly and not off at an angle. Also be at the right distance to get the best benefit.

3D tv technology is improving all the time and the newest models are very effective.

Dont worry about losing the glasses, they;re easy enough to see being plastic frames.

That that one of many things I didn't like about 3D imaginary. The out of focus thing. There was some movie I watched in 3D notice things was out of focus many times. Very annoying.

I've found the post-converted 3D blu-rays to be better, of course it all depends on how much money and effort was put into the conversion. Nightmare Before Christmas was almost exactly the same as 2D, I even took the glasses off and double images only appeared in a few scenes, but Captain America: The Winter Soldier is fantastic. But the Hobbit movies were filmed in 3D and are unwatchable to me, though something seems to be wrong somewhere so I can't judge completely. The images seem to glow and jump around the screen instead of moving smoothly, and they'll constantly switch between forward and backward perspective.
 
Weird ! I have the Hobbit in 3D and it was awesome, especially the scenes in the mines !
 
Not much.

Saw a 3-D movie once. Seemed every scene was built around the idea of 3-D rather than the story itself.

Old story: No screen or teleplay can truly succeed if built around only special effects. Kiss of death...
