I've just finished watching Megamind on a 95" screen, and then coming to this article, it raised several points.Glasses Free
- Couldn't care less... I wear glasses anyway, so even 2D viewing is not glasses free.. Whether I wear one pair, or two pair, makes absolutely no difference to me.
Glasses free only applies to TV, and I really have no desire to have 3D on my TV. For me, the thing that makes it more special, is that I can watch 2D TV all day long, and confine 3D to the seperate act of watching it on my big screen. It's in effect like going to the cinema, as it is a totally different viewing experience. I don't want to just watch 3D in the same way as I watch 2D "everyday" TV, I want it to be distinct and rewarding... and that's what it is... for me anyway. My current setup is a 40" 2D LED TV, and my 95" projector screen... no amount of TV tech, is going to change that.20/20 Vision
- My right eye is terrible, it really is, and they can offer no means to correct it. If I cover my left eye, I cannot see what this webpage says... but my 3D viewing is still fine. As people have said, if your brain can work things out in normal, everday life, 3D should (in theory) be the same. I struggle with stereograms, but 3D films are no problem.
I think 3D is like the introduction of colour TV in a way. Once it's been announced, beyond the way it's presented, there's not many ways you can keep introducing it. So it came, got accepted into the collection of TV features, and now it simply exists, along with other standard TV features.
I just wish it had all arrived 15 years ago. My wife had to have her eye removed during an operation almost 9 years ago, and that's something that tech cannot make up for. She passed away just over 18 months ago, and every time I watch a 3D movie, I can't help but regret, that it is something she would have loved, but never got the chance to experience.
