What is the price of this Smart LCD screen? That will go a long way in determining my thoughts on the product.

As for now I love the idea. I'd like to see some hands-on reviews of the performance and quality. Without knowing a price I can't say how excited I am about the release of this product.

Looks like about $1500 retail. Too rich for my blood!

Read the article I just posted:

Less obviously, you also need an appropriate screen. Standard white or gray screens designed for 2D projectors work fine with projectors using active shutter 3D glasses, but they scramble polarization, turning the polarized light into non-polarized light (or, to be technically correct, randomly polarized light). Try using one of these screens, and you won't get 3D.

To take advantage of the polarization for 3D, you need a silver screen material, which retains all, or very nearly all, of the polarization when it reflects the image.

Is there any option or any kind of spray you recommend to apply to my white screen to turn it to silver screen,
sorry for my question if it is not professionally because I'm just a user not 3d professional, i don't mind to buy it with this price 1500 as long as it will work with my optoma HD33
as passive projector, if the quailty will be good and do you know if it will work with any passive glasses like the one in the theatre ?

I doubt you want to paint an existing screen. According to this page:
http://www.gooscreen.com/goo-information-applying-goo.asp
Quote:
Screen Goo can be applied to any smooth, paintable surface.

You want to paint it on the wall or a piece of smooth plywood. All the directions can be found on the link above. I doubt anything would work on an existing screen. It most likely wouldn't stick, or will crack and peel once dry.
