After releasing a white paper explaining some bits of their news technology for glasses-free autostereosocpic displays, ZECOTEK is this time announcing that their patent 7,944,465 has been granted by the U.S. Patent Office.
At Computex 2011, Asus unveiled its news 3D EEE Pad MeMo featuring a very bright 7-inches 1024x600 display with autostereoscopic 3D (no glasses needed!). The screen technology is stated as "parallax barrier 3D overlay".
Nvidia is introducing a pair of wired stereoscopic 3D glasses compatible with the existing 3D Vision ones today for $99. Today, there are 525 full-HD 3D games using Nvidia’s I stereoscopic technology. Users can also watch Blu-ray 3D movies and view streaming 3D video from YouTube and 3DVisionLive.com with the glasses.
Warner Bros and New Line announced today that Peter Jackson has officially titled its next two movies :
"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" will be released on 14 December 2012.
"The Hobbit: There and Back Again" will be released on 13 December 2013.
Audiences have had time to get over 3D as a gimmick, and now they’re at the point of picking and choosing which movies they want in 3D. It means that 3D just becomes another filmmaking tool, and not something that gets used everywhere to artificially inflate the box office take of a movie.
