I like the sound of 3D without glasses, but here's Microsoft's idea:

If you're too lazy to follow that link, you read the title in the url correctly. They want to shoot the images into each of your eyes. Sounds painful. Discuss!

I'm back with a shiny new 3DS, yay!

Lzeon's name is here because he's a big meanie poopy head, and Megumi is smexy.



This was one of the reason the Virtual Boy was a POS. Sure, technology has advanced but I'm still not crazy about images beamed directly into my eyes.

This is, very basically, how the 3DS will work. It will create slightly different images and shoot the light out at different angles to hit each eye to create a 3D effect. In order for this to work on a TV, you need the cameras to know where you are sitting in relation to the screen, so it can adjust the angle of these two images. It's really not that crazy, or any different from any other image which is basically light being "shot into" your eyes and interpreted by your retina/brain. The one question in all of this is how it would compensate for multiple viewers. Not all Xbox owners play by themselves in dark basements, because the only friends they have are other swearing preteens online on Halo...wait, now that I think about it, there's no problem here. jk.

There are always images shooting into your eyes.

It's called sight

really? i thought that episode was awesome!

All the children try to run,
To him its part of the fun.
His branching arms are for collecting,
His face is empty of expressing.
He sometimes hums a lowly drone,
He will wander 'round your home.
Dressed in darkest suit and tie,
He won't let you say goodbye.


Hey now, that episode featured the lovely Ashley Judd as an ensign, so don't go talking bad about it.
