The push for 3D technology is certainly something that companies have been trying to achieve for quite some time already, although the levels of success are questionable. YouTube, the world’s most popular video sharing service, has just introduced a new feature in their service that allows you to watch Full HD videos in 3D by selecting it in the Quality settings segment on the YouTube player. Just make sure you have a pair of 3D glasses to put on in the first place before being transported to a different dimension. Check out the video above and let us know what you think.

YouTube achieved this by using a combination of video characteristics such as color, spatial layout and motion to estimate a depth map for each frame of a monoscopic video sequence, and applying them the right way. What do you think of this improvement – will you be spending more time in front of the computer from now on? Even better is this, you need not have to own a 3D-capable monitor or TV in the first place.
