With the advent of 3D cinema suddenly making our HD home theatre setups less than cutting-edge, IBM may have a solution...

"At the 22nd annual Flat Information Displays conference sponsored by iSuppli here, IBM's display laboratories demonstrated a low-cost way to get high-resolution 3D images from a large-screen television or home-cinema projector that's already on the market."

Not sure what they're doing exactly but I'm guessing this ain't gonna work with LCD :)

At a more integrated $20 level, maybe they add another wheel, with alternating polarised windows? That would make sense. This would be a great, cheap solution for those of us who're going to need to be proofing 3D content too, to bring us back on-topic :)

Interesting. But as evidenced by a demonstration from Imageworks at this year's Siggraph, 3D in the home is an altogether different experience than 3D in an IMAX or a DLP equipped theater. In the theater, the viewer is overwhelmed by the experience, while at home it is just the opposite. There's just something magical, special and exciting about seeing a "Star Wars" film or a "Polar Express" in 3D on the big screen. Also, High Definition Television is still out of reach for most middle-income to low-income families. While the cost has come down considerably in recent years, it is still very high.
