3D TV is Coming


The big news out of the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas is that 3D television is coming.  Most major TV manufacturers were showing off TV and the accompanying 3D glasses for this new technology.  In addition, a number of TV broadcasters have committed to delivering content in 3D.  Those that have seen the technology have been impressed.

Cheaper-TV Take:  Depending on the TV and manufacturer, this technology will cost about $200 more than a similarly equipped non-3D TV.  I really have no interest in a 3D TV, even if there were no cost differentiation between a 3D TV and a non-3D TV.  I have seen a few IMAX movies in 3D and I find it distracting.
