Will glasses-free 3D finally take off in 2014? | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


A number of companies will be pushing the technology and its features at next month's International CES in the hopes of reigniting interest in 3D, a feature that many consumers feel is simply a fad.


The BBC's head of 3D, Kim Shillinglaw, said she believed 3D has so far failed to take off because it is not a straightforward process.


"Watching 3D is quite a hassly experience in the home. You have got to find your glasses before switching on the TV.


I think when people watch TV they concentrate in a different way. When people go to the cinema they go and are used to doing one thing -- I think that's one of the reasons that take-up of 3D TV has been disappointing."



Perhaps not needing to reach for the glasses for a truly immersive experience might change all of that.
