One of the highlights of the Super Bowl 43 will be the 3D commercials. The company who actually makes the official Super Bowl 3D glasses is American Paper Optics. The company announced that with the 125 million Super Bowl 3D glasses they have reached now the astonishing 1 billion 3D paper glasses milestone.
The specialized Super Bowl 3D glasses use Intel's InTru 3D as well as the ColorCode 3-D technology. ColorCode 3-D is a patented 3-D Stereo system. It is supposedly the only system in the world to reproduce 3-dimensional images in a simple way with full color- and depth information on all display media including analogue film.
The Color Code 3-D Glasses are equipped with special Amber and Blue filters. This color code technology allows viewers without the glasses to see an almost normal image on the TV screen.
DreamWorks' Monsters vs. Aliens and PepsiCo's SoBe Lifewater will be featured in 3D on Super Bowl Sunday. The 3D glasses you need to see the 3D action are distributed for free at SoBe displays in super markets.

Super Bowl 2009 will be happening on Sunday February 1st. This Super Bowl is a treat for geeks that is why we will cover it even more than in 2008. Despite the recession a 30 second Super Bowl Ad costs about $3m and there should be lots of must see Commercials again. There will be for instance the first 3D Super Bowl Ads and lots of Super Bowl Ads featuring new 2009 Sci-fi Movies including the new Star Trek and the next Transformers movie. So make sure you have your Super Bowl sized LCD HDTV and NFL Gear ready.
