    I have an LCD-3D tv. With a 3D DVD player 5+1 surround.. It's not like looking at a film in a box, but more like through a window as the 3D reaches behind as well as in front of the screen. My favorite s are Avatar and Hugo. I have a 40 inch tv, which is about the absolut minimum to enjoy your "window"-view.

    I suspect when 3D came along, one of the reasons it wasn't adopted because many old laser disc customers had become suspicious of new technology dumped on the market before it was perfected. I wonder how many unplayable Pioneer lasers are still out there collecting dust in basements @ around $30.00 per movie.

    If you look very closely the glasses also flash commands like OBEY and CONSUME in front of your eyes. It's AMAZING!

    Hey Slow Mo Guys, can you please tell this person, that he is horribly wrong ? He claims, that measuring the speed of light did not happen. Channel : Veritasium Video title : Why No One Has Measured The Speed Of Light His take is, that it is measured using a mirror, and that we can't know , if the reflecting on a mirror, changes the light's speed. He claims, it could be, that the one way towards the mirror is the speed we know, and the way back could be instantanious. Wtf ? I say, his take is already destroyed, by imagining using a 4 mirror setup for the same distance of travel that gets measured, instead of a one mirror setup, and see the same result of measured time the light needs to travel that distance. Yet we film light, and he still has his video up. Like, come on.

    Great Video. You should do a test on the "NEW" 3D projectors. 3D TV might be dead, but 3D Projectors rock. Most projector manufacturers settled on a 3D standard called DLP-Link. and brought down the cost of the glasses. If only the TV manufacturers had done the same thing, maybe we'd still have 3D TV's.

    Fascinating stuff... although if I'm honest, the biggest surprise in this video for me was discovering that 3D TVs aren't sold any more. I have a 40-inch (2D) TV I bought in about 2006, but I don't watch TV, only DVDs and YouTube, so I'm really out of touch with the tech. It's a shame! Are they really just unavailable now?

    In fact, 3D TVs disappear because big companies are lame, they didn't care about consumer, they cared only about profit. They didn;'t came for an agreement about just ONE 3D tech, everyone choose they one way, even by purpose. Even more, just for one company., new 3D tech was released, so the old tech became obstolete, or more adaptors...... So...too many incompatibilities, too many options, too many customer those old times with non-tochscreen cellphones from Nokia, Sony Ericsson , Siemens, Sagem who didn't want to share the same cable connections like nowadays MicroUSB or Type C....
