3D movies coming to airplanes and cars

04.25.2011

Because you love it so much at the movie theater, 3D movies are on their way to airplanes and cars next.

But before you get too upset, the news item is that the screen will be glasses free from MasterImage 3D, a company pioneering the tech. They already make the glasses-free 3D tech for smartphones and tablets, but they're looking to expand it to other areas including airplanes and cars. They won't comment on which companies they're talking to, but this could be something you see in a few years.

I haven't experienced glasses free 3D myself yet, so I can't quite comment on if this is a significant step forward. From what I gather, it's more like you're seeing stuff deep BEHIND the picture rather than having stuff pop out of it like you see with glasses. Is this a better or worse effect?

I think as the technology continues to be perfected, it will probably be worthwhile, and I think 3D will only truly become the mainstream format once glasses are no longer required. What say you?

I agree with what people are saying about turbulence and 3D movies not mixing necessarliy however just anote that the as someone who is staunchly against the deluge of 3D movies that the 3D effect on the 3DS is actually pretty good. You are right that things are more in the background rather than coming out the screen but it is better than having to wear those god awful glasses. This sort of tech will only ever be useful for 1:1 devices like the 3DS and the story above as you need to be

This sort of tech will only ever be useful for 1:1 devices like the 3DS and the story above as you need to be squarely in front of the screen to get the 3D effect so I can't see how they will get around this (if at all) for the home market.

I think we have to bite the bullet that 3D isn't going away any time soon....sadly.

WTF PLEASE STOP THIS HORSE SHIT NONSENSE...

PLEASE. 3D was cool like when avatar did something with it. the only reason that movie is any good. The plot, the acting, everything else about that movie is shit. the VFX is amazing but thats all, that and it manage to ripped off so many movie's. Anyways now 3D is just a fuckin gimick even going out of the way to post convert which we saw in countless films. Some it worked in some it was fucking tedious and stupid. Last airbender I heard was garbage in it and same with Clash (LAB was a POS of

Anyways now 3D is just a fuckin gimick even going out of the way to post convert which we saw in countless films. Some it worked in some it was fucking tedious and stupid. Last airbender I heard was garbage in it and same with Clash (LAB was a POS of shit film anyways, CLASH was really good I didn't see it in the PC3D, thats what I call it) anyways. some films worked like tron legacy and even that owl movie. But now it's getting out of hand 3D games are fuckin shit I played kill zone 3 in 3D on my uncle's TV and I couldn't even play it was blurry and annoying it had a line of blurryness following behind the actual characters in the game. I turned it off in less then 5 mins. Horrible (IDK how the 3DS is. So I can't vouch for that) But now 3D in out homes, that's the dumbest shit ever WHY (dont' buy into it.) And now in cars and airplanes who's the idiot who thought of that terrible idea. I can see the death rate from car crashes doubling when this comes out. Teen was killed in a 3D accident. LOL give me a break. and airplanes. I give up with this stupid rant.

Great news. So if you like 3D and they give you more options to see it that way, is it a bad thing? No, of course no. But feel free to rage at being given MORE options on how you watch movies... lol.

3D in general is annoying, it doesn't add anything to the experience.

The tricky thing about non-glasses 3D (like the 3DS) is that you have to be looking at the screen from a certain angle and within a certain distance for it to look right. You move around a bit and the image gets distorted. I turn the 3D off on my 3DS after 5 minutes.

about time

to develop tech for not needing glasses, but boo for it in total. Thsi is where Avatar sucks, it was so good with the 3D that most people (morons) think anything with 3D is good 3D, which us in the know, isnt true, most of it is bad and not needed. Have you seen Avatar in 2D, its fricking great looking and has the 3D feel to it bc the effects are top notch and give that illusion. Most movies have no need for 3D.

That's exactly what I was about to type! Airsick and eye strain at the same time. As if screaming babies aren't enough headache.
