All aboard! It's time to jump on the 3D bandwagon, at least that's what Toshiba wants you to do, which is co-conducting the three-dimensional ride in the mobile market with its new Satellite A665 3D-ready laptop. And the the other co-pilot? That would be Nvidia, whose 3D Vision Technology provides the engine for this 3D ride. Your ticket costs... Read more...
Cute? Or just ridiculous? It may be a combination of both, but one thing it definitely is is a money grab. As 3D continues to take the world by storm, more and more companies are hoping to get in on the riches. RealD has been a part of 3D development for years, and their passive 3D glasses are in tons of movie theaters today. These cheap,... Read more...
We don't know if the emerging 3D craze will end up a mere blip in the history of home entertainment or, if like netbooks, this will become the newest must-have technology, but if the 3D market does fall flat on its face, it won't be for a lack of effort from Sony. On the contrary, the electronics maker this week... Read more...
Like the Boston Celtics (put a sock in it, Lakers fans), Plasma technology refuses to whither away quietly, no matter what fancy new technologies (like LED-backlit displays) try to takes its place. Don't believe it? Try telling that to Panasonic, which has just announced a pair of new large screen 3D Plasma displays, the 3D Viera TH-P46VT2... Read more...
Display Taiwan 2010 has followed Computex in order to keep the trade show floors humming in Taipei, and the panel makers are out in full force showcasing their latest goods. AUO is a company that few people recognize, but that most LCD buyers should be quite familiar with. AUO makes a great many of the panels that end... Read more...
And the 3D bandwagon continues to grow. First it was the 3D cinema, and next came 3D HDTVs. Now we've got 3D PCs, and 3D Blu-ray movies are on the way. But what if those last two could be combined? Oh, wait, they have been. Toshiba's Japanese branch has just announced the first notebook to have the capabilities to... Read more...
3D may be the "big thing" right now, but it's still too early to tell whether it's consumers that are driven the demand, or the companies that are invested in the technology. Yes, 3D cinema has gone over well, but it's still too early to tell whether even that is just another fluke. Remember, the world has seen 3D in cinemas before, and it... Read more...
It simply had to happen at some point. There's 3D cinemas, 3D HDTVs, and now, the 3D PC is upon us. NVIDIA and Asus are teaming up to make an early push into a market that will almost definitely explode over the coming months and years, laying down a few ground rules about what it takes to call a new PC a "3D PC." We... Read more...
If we didn't know any better, we would assume that James Cameron, the guy who directed Avatar, Titanic, and loads of other mega-hits, was a paid spokesperson for 3D. Every place we turn, it's James talking good about 3D, with never a negative thing to say about the format. Without a doubt, James is the most prominent... Read more...
3D has become quite the hot button topic around the world, with many viewing it as a scam and many saying that it's the best thing since widescreen. There's no doubt that cinemas have enjoyed charging more for tickets and making loads of money from the hits of 2009 and 2010, but we have never been convinced that the general public is really...

3D HDTVs are set to continually roll out throughout the year now; most were announced at CES, and just now companies are starting to ship their newest sets. Panasonic is destined to become a pretty big player in the space, with the company this week announcing pricing and nationwide retail availability dates for the... Read more...
At this point, we'd say the 3D revolution is raging on in full force. In fact, it's getting a little bit out of control. It's clearly the bandwagon to be on in the home entertainment industry, and now Sony is expanding the term to an area that has thus far remained clear of any tampering: audio. To be honest, we...

Sony already announced that 3D gaming would soon be coming to their PlayStation 3 console, which isn't surprising considering how invested the company already is in 3D HDTVs and "3D audio." The PS3 is easily one of the most flexible and versatile game consoles ever, able to play games, Blu-ray Discs, and soon, 3D... Read more...
3D cinemas, 3D handhelds, 3D glasses, and 3D HDTVs. What's next? 3D projectors! If a 50" (or larger) 3D TV isn't large enough for you and your family, ViewSonic is making a move to bring the 3D frenzy that has taken the world by storm to a slightly larger format. The new PJD5352 projector is a short-throw device that can work in extremely... Read more...
3D. It's impossible to avoid these days, and we get the feeling that those who try will be facing an uphill battle. Now that the format has cemented itself in the cinema, there's only one more major place to invade: your living room.Almost every major TV maker has already either announced 3D HDTVs or plans to ship 3D HDTVs in the future, but...

NAB 2010 has kicked off in Las Vegas, bringing the world's focus yet again on the 3D universe. NVIDIA has shown interest in the format before, with the company's 3D Vision technology enabling gamers to experience all sorts of new depth on all sorts of new gaming titles. But of course, just satisfying gamers who yearn... Read more...
Call it a gimmick if you will, but as far as hardware manufacturers are concerned, the 3D craze is better described as a cash cow. Enter Sharp, who announced plans to milk the market starting with Japan when the company begins selling 3D-capable LCD TVs later this summer."We are now one step closer to such things as 3D displays with the world's...

3D may be popping up in just about every facet of consumer electronics these days (your next HDTV included), but so far, it managed to largely avoid tampering with the delicate Internet space. Of course, we all knew it wouldn't stay that way forever, and now a technology expert at Intel expects 3D to be a huge part of... Read more...
Here's a tidbit that the 3D pundits might find interesting: 3D movies have generated 33% of total box office revenue since the release of Avatar last December in the U.S. 33%. That's one-third of all movie revenue in America. Talk about stepping in and making an impact! Just two years ago, finding a 3D theater was a... Read more...
3D. It's a format that's being talked about, and implemented, almost everywhere these days. It's impossible to avoid, but thankfully it doesn't seem that 3D will be completely replacing 2D anytime soon. 3D as a format has had its fair share of pundits due to having to wear 3D glasses to view most implementations, but to say that no buzz has...

3D is going places that you never thought possible, and honestly, in more places than you probably ever imagined. Just a couple of years ago, 3D was seen as a has-been format that died out in the 80s. Today, it's the "next big thing." As if taking over the cinema and your living room weren't enough, 3D is also coming to handheld gaming consoles.... Read more...
Microsoft's Project Natal might change gaming as we know it when it launches this holiday season, much like Nintendo's Wii did just a few years back. There's no question that a lot of technology has been involved in creating a system that could actually recognize human movements and transform them into console commands, and now PrimeSense...
