  • DLP invades IMAX, replaces film

    Isn’t OMSI cool looking? IMAX theaters are set to rid themselves of 70mm film and replace it with TI’s fancy DLP Cinema digital movie files for 2D and 3D movies. So I guess those cool viewing bays with the film going around are now obsolete, which is kind of sad because that was neat to look at while waiting on line. At least it was at the OMSI in Portland. But the DLP cinema… Read More

  • Samsung, DDD ink deal for upcoming 3D HDTVs

    The DDD Group, they’re a 3D software company, has joined forces with Samsung to integrate its TriDef 3D functionality into low cost 3D chips for upcoming generations of Samsung’s 3D HDTVs. However, DDD will have to reach a certain technical milestone for a prototype chip, which they expect to be finished sometime in the first half of this year before they receive their development fee.

  • Samsung bringing 3D plasmas to market next month

    As usual, Samsung will be the first to bring a 3D plasma HDTV to the US market next month in 42- and 50-inch versions. Most of us at CG have seen a demo of this within the last six months and it’s safe to say how darn cool it is. If and when you decide to purchase one you get the appropriate software and 3D glasses. Don’t fret because you can still watch your 2D moving pictures… Read More

  • Rumor: Canon to introduce mid-pro "3D" camera and 5D replacement?


    Apparently some Canon reps technicians have loose lips and while jawing about how unpredictable their bosses were about announcing things, may have leaked a few specs for a phantom camera set to fit in between the 1D Mark III and the 5D. He also mentioned some possible upgrade specs for the 5D — maybe now is your chance to buy a used 5D on the cheap as all the pros ditch for the new… Read More

  • CES 2008: Sensio's 3D TV tech works for us colorblind nerd jerks!

    I love the new types of 3D technology coming to our homes. Sensio’s got a type they were showing off, and it works. I’m colorblind, so 3D usually just looks like crap to me, but their system is using the far superior polarized system, and it worked. They’re utilizing a combination of various 3D methods to pull this off, and the outcome is very god indeed. It didn’t pop… Read More

  • Loreo 3D lans cap creates, yes, 3D images

    Perhaps you woke up this morning and said to yourself, “You know what? I’d love to waste $100 on something I don’t need.” Lucky! This 3D lens cap from Loreo is said to “create” “3D” “images” when used in conjunction with a 3D viewer. A gimmick, in other words. In its defense, it does work with pretty much every SLR on the market… Read More

  • Mio adds 3D support to GPS units

    You know that cool feature in Google Earth where in decent-sized cities you can have 3D renderings of buildings and so forth? Mio Technologies is bringing that fun to the GPS world with the new C620 and C620t GPS receivers. The map like most receivers, but simply overlay the 3D imagery of more than 1000 European landmarks. There’s no reason to believe that if the company brought these… Read More

  • 3D virtual secretary loves you for your power


    InterGrafx is showing off a virtual 3D secretary that can wake you up, make appointments, and generally do everything a real secretary will do except add a human element to your business life and make you feel secure in the knowledge that things are being taken care of while you’re on the road and answering the phone with intelligence and aplomb. Go future! “It’s very… Read More

  • Just nut up and do it, you mangina

    I’m of the mindset that you shouldn’t think about getting a tattoo and that you should just do it. If you begin to second guess yourself, well, then, it just won’t happen. Know what you want before hand and then just do it. Of course, you should find a good artist to begin with instead of some hack in St. Mark’s Place. It’s better to pay a bit more when… Read More

  • Email flight simulator: When drugs aren't enough

    WHAT IF THERE WAS A PLACE BEYOND YOUR IMAGINATION? I probably wouldn’t imaging a freaking email program that simulates a LAX and assigns a jumbo jet to all of your emails. “Email meets flight sim. In Level 2 of 3D Mailbox, each of your emails is represented by a jumbo jet. Based on the country of origin/destination, over 80 national airlines are employed, along with thousands of… Read More

  • Samsung's PIP, 3D mobile phone

    When I first posted about the B710 there wasn’t a whole lot about it that made me think it was worth mentioning other than a quick blurb. I mean, sure, the PIP is cool, but I didn’t think it was THAT cool. After seeing it in person yesterday (and unknowingly a few days before since it’s my Uncle’s phone), I’ve certainly changed my mind. The ability to watch a… Read More

  • Amazing 3D gesture-based Pioneer GPS system

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf I was wandering around the show floor when I came upon this little gem. It’s a gesture-based 3D system that lets you control your dashboard GPS/radio with a wave of your finger. It’s over at the Carrozzeria booth, which is an offshoot of Pioneer. The icons that pop up float in 3D and you wave and bat… Read More

  • Novint Falcon Hitting CompUSA

    Hey, everybody! Remember that 3D touch game doohickey we told you about a few months ago? Yeah know, where you can feel shapes, textures and weight. Well, if you’ve been waiting-and I know you have been-hit up your local CompUSA store beginning October 8th and pick up a Novint Falcon game controller. There’s a super exclusive Limited Edition Novint Falcon Bundle for $239 that… Read More
