Where Are 3D T.V's Going ?

Two significant developments have recently occurred in 3D TV's. The first, 3D TV's are soon to be offered commercially without the need to wear 3D glasses. Recent improvements in 3D TV technology has allowed 3D images to appear as if there naturally coming from these 3D TV sets. A nice demo and explanation from the CES expo can been seen here.

The second, Japanese scientists have recently invented touchable 3D TV's which allows users to touch, pinch or poke images floating in front of them. Since last September Japanese scientists have been able to create touchable holograms and lately this development has moved to 3D T.V's.

It should be interesting to see what is on offer at this years up coming CEATEC expo !
