3D TV...Hope Or Hype?

How many dimensions do we really need?

Isn't high definition TV good enough?

I guess I've never been a big fan of those glasses and the limited increase in viewing pleasure of 3D.

James McQuivey, from Forrester Research has some sobering input on 3DTV and says 3DTV Adoption Will Take Years

just because millions of people watched Avatar in 3D that they will all run right out and buy a $2000 3D TV set

people who really love sport, movies, and gaming, already have a massive flat screen in their living rooms

The picture is distorted unless you are looking directly at the set. That's fine for gamers or sports devotees, but not someone casually watching the evening news

How long for adoption?

If it took 10 years for HD to go from 1 home to reach more than half the US population, it will take 3D just as long

Personally I think that because most of the population just spent a pretty penny on a new LCD or plasma TV,and that 3D isn't for everyday TV viewing, the gaming industry will be the pioneer for this technology.

Are you an inventor with a great idea but don't know what to do next?
