Re: Maybe not for TV right away
The notion of a 3-D TV is interesting--elements of it are already before us too.    I hope @batye you may want to share further insights to see whether this is a critical milestone for us to achieve.

Re: Maybe not for TV right away
@elizabethv yes, they did make them, it was something like -

3D Video Wizard Console with 2 Pack of 3D Adult Glasses - https://www.amazon.com/Video-Wizard-Console-Adult-Glasses/dp/B005SN3INA/ref=sr_1_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1474731582&sr=8-15&keywords=3d+adapter+box


 I do not recommend it as it make me feel bad after watching it :( I use it only once and did not like it :(...

for HD-DVD I got adapter box to xbox 360 -

Xbox 360 HD DVD Player - https://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-HD-DVD-Player/dp/B000JHO4L0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1474731743&sr=8-1&keywords=hd-dvd+xbox360


 used few times and put it back in the box :( too many problems to make it run...... still have 12 HD-DVD to watch :)

Re: Maybe not for TV right away
That's really interesting, I didn't even know they made adaptors to turn a regular TV into a 3D TV. I guess it can't be that great if you have left it in the box for a few years. Kind of like anyone that invested in HD DVD.

Re: Maybe not for TV right away
You're probably right. My best friend actually sent me a picture yesterday, of her "65in 4k smart 3D TV" that she still needs rabbit ears for so they can watch football games. I know they occassionally use the 3D, but I also know it isn't all that often. If I'd invested in something like that only to find it wasn't really worth the investment, I'd probably be a little, can we call it wallet shy? too.

@elizabethv I think everyone still remembers 3D's TV hype... and everyone trying to play safe with VR headsets...

Re: Maybe not for TV right away
I get what you're saying, about VR headsets not being geared towards movies, but I don't know that the idea is completely without merit. If you could create a movie that would really immerse the viewer into the world of the movie, I could see there being a market for this. Look at the people that have 3D televisions. There aren't necessarily a lot of people that decided to invest in the concept, but  there is a niche market. I don't think a VR movie would be all that different from a 3D movie, especially if you threw in the possibility of being slightly interactive. Like the books you read as a kid, "If you would drive down the road, flip to page 83, if you would have a picnic flip to page 25."

Re: VR

Exactly. We probably won't see significant adoption until bandwidth connections are MUCH MUCH better. Data caps are not exactly encouraging VR headset adoption. If Netflix is still battling ISPs to defend its service, I can't imagine VR content even getting off the ground.

Re: Maybe not for TV right away
> "enabling a theatre like view for movies, within the headset.."

Hmm. I'm skeptical that headsets will be any kind of replacement for movie theaters. The benefits of VR headsets include some mobility and interactivity. It would be a step backwards to try to mimic a movie theater with a headset... Part of the reason to go to a theater is to be able to sit next to friends/family and enjoy the experience together. Headsets might not be able to capture that aspect very well for a movie. It's better suited for a interactive game with friends?

Re: Virtual Headsets
> "They've made just about everything else in technology smaller.."

It's not that easy to make a VR headset much smaller, but you're right that as long as they're bulky and dorky-looking gadgets, there's almost no way it's going to become mainstream. People don't even like wearing prescription eyeglasses, so until there's a direct brain interface for VR... (but then all the software work will be completely different).
