I've heard about this stuff for a while, we even had a couple of companies release prototype products of this stuff. Hell, there was even a Best Buy commercial that promoted this stuff (of course, it was related to it's faulty upgrade program but still...) and now it's being introduced in CES 2012.
Granted, I have nothing against the glasses (in fact, they may not be rendered obsolete entirely) but I want to see how it works out before jumping on board; in person. That way I can get an informed decision whether or not to go the glasses-free or the glasses TV. Still, the idea of glasses-free 3D on the big screen sounds really interesting.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
Im in the "its a gimmick" camp. Especially while it requires glasses. If this stuff works out, it may be enough to sway me.
I'm still trying to find out if there has been any studies on long term use... can this be bad for your eyes in the long run? or worse... are there possible neurological effects?
I've tried searching but of course haven't came up with much. I'm just wondering if this is something that would be safe, I wouldn't want to let my 6yr old stare at 3D screens for too long until I knew more about it.
I just know when I watch 3D in the theatre my vision is off for a short period of time afterwards.
Either way, for those who have been anticipating this, it's great news!

Once its "glasses free 3D", dissuading people won't be necessary. How can you avoid 3D content for the rest of your life? I've always loved 3D even before it was available. Maybe deep down I knew that this is the way to go. Playing games in 3D is the way to play 3D games. Otherwise why bother creating it?
