But, the other day I ventured into PC World in Bangor, North Wales and found a demo of 3D going on using an LG TV. Having never seen 3D before and being rather sceptical, I sat on the sofa in front of the TV to watch.
To say that I was blown away by the effects would be putting it mildly. I do realise that the demo being shown was specially made to demonstrate the effects to their best advantage, but I actually put out my hand to touch a Harrier flying past an aircraft carrier!!!
My only regret is that my wife saw it too. Her remark "Wouldn't the grandchildren enjoy it when they come round" filled me with terror - so we left, rapidly!!
as an old grumpy (67), i think 3d was a novelty just to get people to spend money on a new tv,i know it's very good but look how much 3d contents out there,not a lot. as i usually say "it's a deceased aquatic bird". in other words a dead duck.
wiz-king agreed,still little content though and different glasses standard. reminds me of the betamax vhs standard (I'm that old) or for our younger members blue ray fight, when standards are sorted out i'll maybe just maybe get one. then maybe not
mole44 I am not a spring chicken either - my first answer-phone used 5" reels of tape for the messages an a couple of 'small' 3" reels to record the prompts, it kept the bedroom/office warm with all its valves glowing away. I still have a Betamax video recorder and I think the quality was better than VHS.
