Following Apple’s lead, Sony says it’s been working on a next-generation TV.
Stereoscopic 3D is the rage in TVs now, with more than half of the new TV models using the technology this year. And now it’s spreading to smartphones as well. South Korean electronics giant LG announced today it will unveil its LG Optimus 3D smartphone on Feb. 14 at the Mobile World Congress event in Europe.
Toshiba is announcing today that it has created a prototype for a glasses-free 3D laptop. So far, nobody else seems to have this technology so Toshiba may have an edge on rivals if it brings the machine to market.
Director James Cameron said that he believes stereoscopic 3D, like the kind in his blockbuster film Avatar, will eventually become pervasive, but a lot of things have to fall into place first.
3D TVs are a really hard sell. They look nice, but I don’t really want to pay $2,100 to $5,000 for a TV with stereoscopic 3D images for my living room. I already have a flat-panel TV.
