[indent][i]"After a full day roaming the Consumer Electronics Show floor, I have to say the most mind-blowing thing I saw was the dual-view and 3D high-definition technology called DLP, made by Texas Instruments. This technology is being rolled out in Mitsubishi and Samsung televisions.
These are not flat-screen models, but thicker projection TVs. I was initially stopped in my tracks by the amazing image on a 73-inch model.
Stop right there. All I needed to hear was 73 inch model. That means a 73 inch Laser DLP is on the way. SIGN ME UP SOLD....
I wouldn't make that assumption. Neither of the demos she's referring to ran on the Laser TV's Mitsubishi debuted at the Palms on Monday night--they ran on conventional lamp and color wheel models being used in the DLP booth. While Mitsubishi is pushing the Laser TV sets, the 73-inch Mitsubishi she's talking about was not one of them. The three Laser sets were all 65".
This takes nothing away from the amazing demos available at the booth. My wife, who is much more of a pragmatist than I am when it comes to bleeding edge technology, was wowed by the dual-view demo(although I think she just covets the ability to watch movies while I play Madden
). I thought the 3D presentation was the best home 3D application I've seen, mostly because they modified current movies and video games (Harry Potter, Revenge of the Sith, Beowulf, Madden, etc) to showcase it.
