Don't get me wrong, I know it's the real deal, I've read several eyes-on reports. I just don't think it's going to hit shelves this year at a reasonable price.
I plan on buying a "normal" passive TV in a couple months, and I figure when it's time to replace that one, these glasses-free 4K models should be down to acceptable prices.
Like most big stuff at CES, I presume just about all of it to be several years away from normal consumer pricing.
Let me clarify something, though.. this is not some kind of head-tracking thing, because someone was experimenting with that a couple years ago... multiple people can sit side by side and watch the same content, right?
At the end of your second video, I saw some "rippling" effect when you moved the camera side to side. Is that what makes this effect work? (I know they were mum on how it worked, but it seems like this would be part of it). As a result, I would almost expect there to be some "dead spots" where the effect isn't visible. Was that the case? Or was the effect constant the entire way across the frame?
This does bring up another problem... what's going to happen to the movies where the 3D version's brightness is bumped up to compensate for the glasses? I know most of them probably aren't, but I know a few that are.
