3D is the future media. It’s been pushed by Hollywood hard ever since Avatar took over the box office. Everything that comes out in the movies is in 3D. Even if it was not meant to be. They go and have it converted. Even if its to the dismay of movie goers. Case in point Clash of the Titans.

While at the movies you stay in a fixed position. That is why the glasses for 3D are not too much of a distraction. You don’t move. You are there to enjoy the content on the huge screen. Now while at home that is a completely different matter all together.  People don’t want to be forced to wear glasses nor do they want to stay in a stationary location.

Such a thought will be a thing of the past. Recently while at CES on The Hill I happen to have met a very knowledgeable individual named Rodolfo La Maestra. He is the Senior Technical Director at HDTV Magazine.   Rodolfo has participated in the HDTV vision since the late 1980’s when HDTV was proposed as an analog system. In the late 1990’s, he began tracking and reviewing HDTV related technologies and hundreds of consumer products, which prompted him in 2002 to pioneer the authoring of the annual HDTV Technology Review report.

Rodolfo and I had a long conversation about the state of media and where it is going. 3D in the home is the most fascinating topic he covered however.  Soon consumers will be able to watch 3D at home with out the need for glasses.  Thanks to a company called 3D Fusion. They have come up with a glass less 3D technology that is in one word “incredible”
