HDTV, or 3DTV?  

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
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!

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.

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

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.
