3D at home? Much more of a quesiton mark for me. I agree with the statements about the glasses. Waaay too much hassle for me for most viewing.
I would love to watch a football or baseball game in 3D on a nice HD flat panel to see if I like it, though. I could be convinced to watch 3D on the weekends, if it looked good enough. Maybe a golf match? I would bet that the Masters would look amazing. The broadcast 3D sports is the new twist to the old story.
I think that I read that the alternating time thing in the 3D glasses could actually cause eye damage in certain folks, although the research is in its early stages. I don't want to start rumors here but I read an article recently somewhere about it. It listed some compelling details. Again it was only preliminary stuff. I hadn't thought about that. Human eyes didn't evolve looking at alternating scenes in front of them.
