Given the choice, which would you rather have - HDTV, or SDTV in 3D without glasses? Now, I love my HDTV, but TV in 3D would be damn sweet, even at the lower resolution!

"Playing this game is like having your eyes slit open with straight razors, filled with baby spider eggs, then re-sealed, and then being treated to the sensation of hundreds of tiny, venemous little arachnids bursting into being behind your pupils, consuming everything they can touch, and feeling...

You can have both, just place a dark lens over your right eye while you are watching a HD program. Of course, there has to be movement to get the 3D effect. I want HD color holograms, now that would be cool.

You measure your TV in INCHES? How cute! 9.16 Ft Diagonally, Yeah, Baby!

Jakehall - the effect is called the Pulfrich effect. You can find out a little more about it here:

http://www.rainbowsymphony.com/3dpulfrich.html

and there's a little demo here:

Several specials have been broadcast using this effect, and they usually tell you where to pick up free glasses. The first, I believe, was a Coke commercial during a Superbowl about 10 years ago. One of the more recent was Sharks on the Discovery Channel (well, if they don't do HD, maybe they can do 3D). :-)

Do a Google search on Pulfrich and you'll find a lot more on this effect.
