The Dark Lord In 3D
No, I'm not referring to myself with that title. TI's booth had the funnest demo of the show, to be sure, a 3D demo on a Samsung DLP RPTV with the attractive and active 3D goggles shown above (modeled by yours truly). A little ballyhoo is good for this industry.
Shown were clips from Star Wars Epsiode II: Attack of the Clones, NASCAR, Meet the Robinsons and, finally the opening sequence of the original Star Wars, including the first appearance of the Dark Lord himself. The effects were startlingly good at times, although I was personally always thinking of the gimmick and not the material. It's not more realistic at all, maybe even less than typical celluloid. But it sure is fun in short doses!
Ear to ear grins were common during and after the demo- heck, I went three times. I don't think I could wach an entire movie this way- the process feels a little fatiguing. But folks, they're serious about this 3D thing. And damn, those goggles look sharp!
