3D for the living room has emerged as a huge theme at CES 2010 and electronics and media companies have announced lots of 3D gear and content that will be available this year.
I like 3D in the cinema. I was watching 3D as soon as the first IMAX theaters had 3D movie features years back. Today many normal cinemas offer 3D movie feature presentations and I love this trend.
The way I watch movies at home is with a Blu-ray player and an HDTV. Watching movies is an event for me and my family and with a screen of about 150 inches we have a small cinema with comfy seats, free drinks and no tall people sitting in front of us.
For me a big screen is totally essential to making movie watching immersive. The same is true for watching a movie in 3D. Watching a movie on a 50-inch screen does not get anywhere near the cinema experience. A TV is good for watching TV, but movies need a bigger canvas.

The same is true for 3D. To get close to the 3D experience in cinemas you need a 3D projector for your home and a large projection screen. Good thing that consumer 3D projectors are coming. I see much more market potential for consumer 3D projectors than for 3D TVs, because of the resulting experience. Sony, Panasonic and others will manage to sell their new 3D enabled TVs, but 3D on TVs will just be a gimmick, not a killer app. 3D TV will work for video games, if you are used to playing games on your TV. With a 3D Projector though, you can open up your own little digital 3D cinema at home.

LG has announced the LG CF3D 3D Projector and Optoma 3D Projectors at the CES.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
