Get ready for 3DTV

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed that, to a certain degree, I’m not as technologically in-the-know as most people. I don’t necessarily know what new advancements in televisions, or anything else for that matter, have been announced today, but I don’t think I’m too far behind the knowledge curve especially when I get a whiff of something I like or want to try.

That’s how I feel about 3d tv. My interest was originally peaked when I glimpsed a commercial about it. I didn’t see the entire commercial and was too lazy to rewind the DVR, but I saw enough to make me say, “Hmmm? That’s interesting.”

Then I recently read some information that helped me learn a little more about it. You probably know that 3D technology has been around since the 1980s, but it has been limited to museums, Disney-themed movies and the ultra popular IMAX theatres. It was the inspiration of those experiences that 3D is being used in several different areas including televisions and mobile handsets.

So in addition to my longing for a new television (remember I told you about the old one that’s dying?) I now have visions of 3D images dancing in my head as I relax in front of an entire home cinema system. Sounds cool, huh? Okay, you can come, just bring the popcorn.

When you get here, tell me what you think of all of this new technology that’s available to the masses.
