3-D coming to a home near you

leave a comment »

Movies such as Avatar and Alice In Wonderland have been making quite as splash.

The television companies are hoping to cash in on this too.  Panasonic and Sony are both planning to release 3-D t.vs within the year while Mitsubishi and JVC are said to be working on similar products.

The tvs require the use of glasses still and are expected to be a bit more pricey than regular tvs. Because of this, many are saying the transition of 2-D to 3-D is going to take some time.  The current estimate is that within the next 20 years 2-D will become obsolete and 3-D will be what is commonly seen.
