    One of the main incentives behind the 3D craze was combating illegal downloading of movies. 3D hardware is very expensive and has not yet penetrated home entertainment. The movie industry had high hopes for 3D to be some sort of "pirate-killer", because 3D cannot be pirated effectively. Alas, it seems that people prefer to download 2D rather than pay 15$ or more to watch a release in 3D.

    I've never really liked 3D movie's to be honest, I find it rather gimmicky and I'm sure other feel the same.

    Did anyone ever see the Hubble 3D movie? That looked interesting, and had a lot of "real-life" 3D shooting, and of course, astronomy.

    NASA , They told us 60 years , they will build a base at moon , now they will tell us 100 years , they will build a base at Mars. All is bullshit.

    Apparently it was an april fool's joke, but due to popular demand they made it an actual product.

    Not an april fool joke. In this kind of 3D there are two images which are polarized in a different way. 3D glasses use polarization to show to each eye only one image. If you look a 3D film without glasses, both eyes are going to see both images, that's not to be comfy. This glass has the same polarization for both eyes, so you can see a 3D in 2D, both eyes see only one (the same) image of the two which are projected.

    This presupposes you have money to waste and you really like your friends. Otherwise you could just go to a conventional movie screen. Some people would feel "asocial" if they singled themselves out going to a different projection room, or a different cinema. The solution is simple but brilliant

    I myself have converted regular theater glasses to 2D by turning one of the lenses 180 degrees and appyling tape. It might be worth trying if you need to D3D something but you don't want to buy the 2D glasses from ThinkGeek.

    Wouldn't it need to be turned ninety degrees?

    3D is more of a fad than moving pictures. I think both are a flash in the pan. Heck, you exchange your imagination for a visual effect some profit hungry guy decides on. For my, it is still old time radio for my entertainment. I can think, be challenged, be entertained, not get headaches and save the big bucks.

    I think holographic projection is the real wave of advancement. The basics have been around for some years but the technology is still too crude to make the impact. When it gets there, we can just buy holosuites instead of home theaters. Add AI and we can step into the production. Okay Scottie, one to beam up.
