Remember earlier last month when the Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative project was announced? Samsung, Sony, Panasonic and Xpand 3D had announced that they were going to create a standard for 3D glasses; so that consumers will only need one pair of 3D glasses that they can use with their home 3D devices and when they go to the movies. Well, it looks like other TV manufacturers think it’s a good […]
When the name B&O (Bang & Olufsen) is mentioned, the first thing that probably pops into most people’s heads is “out the question, too expensive!” and we don’t think that B&O’s latest offering, the BeoVision 7-55 television will be an exception.
At CES earlier this year, we saw a gamut of stereoscopic 3D HDTVs, and there were even some prototypes of a glasses 3D HDTV strategically placed if you know where to find them. Stereoscopic 3D has not really captured the imagination of the masses, but that has not stopped hardware manufacturers from working on 3D-capable devices such as tablets and even notebooks. LG also wants a piece of the pie […]
Tennis fans with 3D TVs – you no longer need to spend money purchasing tickets to catch the 2011 US Open. How about watching it from the comfort of your living room instead? The USTA (United States Tennis Association) has announced that it will be working with Panasonic and CBS to broadcast the US Open Tennis Championships in 3D again this year (last year’s tournament was also broadcasted in 3D). […]
Looking forward to getting your hands on the LG Thrill 4G? We’ve got some bad news for you – the phone’s release has been delayed – again. Originally scheduled to arrive this weekend on August 21st, the release date of the Android smartphone has been pushed back to September 4th. While it’s not much of a delay, it’s still a delay, and for every day the phone doesn’t arrive is […]
Are vending machines making a silent comeback of sorts to society? First of all we have this vending machine in Japan that accepts donations from the general public in order to help out the March earthquake and tsunami victims via the Red Cross’ efforts, and next we have a baguette vending machine that might just make a certain Jean-Louise Hecht very rich if it takes off. Up next, Marchon3D thinks […]
Earlier this year, Xpand and Panasonic teamed up to come up with a new standard for 3D glasses called M-3DI. The purpose of having a standard was so that consumers would only need one pair of 3D glasses that they can use with their home 3D devices and when they go to the movies. Now it looks like more manufacturers want to get onboard with the program, and it’s been […]
If you attended CES 2011 or have been following the coverage earlier this year, you probably would have come across ViewSonic’s V3D245 monitor which the company debuted at the event. It looks like a pretty sweet monitor and if you have been meaning to check it out or get your hands on the display, appears that the release of the ViewSonic V3D245 is just around the corner.
InFocus Corp has just announced the release of two new projectors in the IN1100 series – the company’s smallest and lightest projectors. Loaded with various input ports, users should have no problem plugging in a video source through one of the projector’s HDMI, VGA, s-video and composite connections. HDMI-inputs mean that you can even plug in your smartphone or tablet (provided it supports HDMI output). The projector even features ports […]
Remember the glasses-free “3D” app created for the iPad 2 awhile ago? Well some developers have decided to take that idea and recreated it on the Windows Phone 7 operating system. This time, they’ve added fun elements into the app, making it a interactive experience instead of just a demonstration of visuals. So while we wait for Windows Phone 7 with real glasses-free 3D screens and capabilities, this app will […]
Great news for Google Maps for Android users – Google has just announced the inclusion of 3D buildings for 18 new locations around the world. In case you forgot, last December Google pushed out an update for its Android Maps app that let users view cities in 3D by giving them models of buildings in major cities around the globe. While a lot of places have yet to receive the […]
The glasses-free 3D movement has certainly picked up to a certain extent, what with stereoscopic 3D capable phones and the Nintendo 3DS having hit the market for some time already. The novelty does wear thin rather quickly for some people though, and perhaps with better technology in the future, things might change and people could very well soften their stance and start to see 3D as a need rather than […]
If you own LG’s 3D phone – the Optimus 3D right now, you would have known by now that it has the ability to convert 2D images and videos into 3D images and videos. The phone uses software to take photographs and estimates the depth from each individual pixel and then generates a new image from it. The phone then shows two images to its users at the same time […]
Sony Europe seems to be pretty active, having rolled out the 3D Experience which is actually a new, free of charge on-demand streaming service that will deliver promotional video clips in addition to trial content – all in stunning 3D so that your eyes will experience a visual overload. This service will go live from today onwards to those who are proud owners of 3D capable Sony BRAVIA LCD TVs […]
