Vizio CinemaWide 3D TV

The new VIZIO CinemaWide 50 and 58 inches 3D TV set has -as its name implies- an aspect ratio of 21:9 but it also offers 120 Hz, 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, Full HD3D, plus wired and wireless Internet connectivity. It uses passive glasses technology for 3D, so 3D glasses at 2$ apiece are OK.

The large format means you can put a full HD (3D or not) movie and screen along with EPG and other info (i.e. Facebook) on the side.... Resolution is 2560x1080 pixels so there is a 640 pixels zone on the left of the 16:9 image for additional stuff.

Princess Leia on your Living Room Table?

Japanese technology company Burton was showcasing its Aerial True 3D display at CES 2012. The display makes use of lasers to create a volumetric display in the air, just as the Princess Leia avatar in Star Wars.

The display is really done in volume and the 3D effect don't require any special glasses. Watch the CNET showcase video here under. This Sci-Fi display will be visible agoin at Imagina 2012 from 7 to 9 February 2012 in Monaco.
