The Adult Film industry has a track record of being the driver behind lots of technology innovations and adoption of technologies like VHS, DVD, online billing or even most recently Blu-ray. The next big thing in home entertainment is supposed to be able to watch 3D movies at home according to lots of new 3D related product announcements at the CES 2009.
Ali Joone, founder and director at Digital Playground said in an interview with Marketwatch that the experiment with 3D, but are waiting for standards to be finalized. Another reason for the adult film industry not to be spear heading 3D despite the obvious very interesting immersive experience are the high production cost. Yes, even the Adult film industry feels the recession, but also the rising of these free porn sites are a problem for established adult film studios. 3D movie adoption at home lies now in the hands of the big Hollywood film studios like DreamWorks. There is some progress as DreamWorks will have a huge promotion for a Super Bowl 2009 Commercial featured in 3D for the upcoming Monsters vs. Alien animated movie. Over 125 million 3D glasses are handed out for free right now across the United States to have people be able to watch the Super Bowl Ad in 3-D on February 1st.
Lots of the newest large panel HDTVs are 3D ready and can be used to watch 3D content while wearing 3D shutter glasses. The problem is still that there is almost no 3D content.
In the meantime I suggest visiting a 3D cinema to see one of the 3-D movies currently available. I really like the experience, but I also think you need a huge IMAX screen for the perfect 3D immersive experience. To watch 3D on a 50 inch screen is not that impressive.
