If you think 3D technology is meant only for the entertainment industry like television, movies and games then you will be surprised to know that even education industry is interested in 3D technology and using it to make the teaching interesting for students.
The students of biology class learned their work in the 3D enabled projectors with the help of 3D glasses. If you check the reaction of the student then you will come to know that they are quite happy with the 3D teaching. Their reactions were positive. Many were thrilled to learn with the help of 3D technology. Teachers as well as students are happy with the way difficult topics can be explained in it.
Unfortunately, this is possible only for a few well funded schools of developed countries. They can expect those 3D images in their palms also within next few years but many developing countries cannot afford this and will have to work on the old systems only. For them these new technologies can only be in the books and they still need to only imagine the difficult concept from the text book.

Lots of new products based on the 3D technology have been launched at the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas this year. One product built by a partnership between Panasonic and Verizon showed a lot and this can surely be the next phase of 3D technology. The two companies together have used the high definition 3D technology for streaming it to the consumers with the help of the FiOS television service of Verizon that uses 100 percent fiber optic. The first type of this demonstration was done through collaboration between these two companies. It was done with the help of the Blu ray 3D player from Panasonic and the future proof network of Verizon.
The engineering minds of the two companies were put together for developing this software and also built the network along with the user interface. Enhancements are done for making complete high definition 3D technology possible through Verizon’s bandwidth service known as FiOS. It has always been believed by Panasonic that a complete high definition image of 1080p resolution is the best way of viewing 3D. However the Blu ray disc has been the only option that is available till now. With the help of the high bandwidth network of Verizon it has been shown that this type of innovative technology can be accomplished by a television service.
The picture resolution of 1080p, which is expected by the consumers from their high definition television, has been preserved by the 3D transmission. The 3D image is degraded by other solutions where the resolution is typically reduced by half. In a demonstration it was shown by the FiOS engineers that a 3D content selection into a Bu ray disc player of Panasonic at a rate of almost 18 Mbps. This bit rate is almost twice what most of the cable providers use at present.
According to Verizon’s chief technology officer Tony Melone the FiOS network is fit to deliver 3D content of full resolution. The FiOS network has been designed in such a way that it is capable of growing along with the rising demand of the consumers for latest technologies. Verizon is driving the future of television with over 140 high definition channels as well as interactive services of the new generation such as DVR management through mobile phone or broadband, social networking and many more. Last year first games in NFL and MLB were televised by Verizon in 3D.

AT&T announces the LG Thrill: a 3D capable cell phone running on the Android 2.2 OS
It’s official: 3D technology has finally reached our cell devices. Can we call them cell phones anymore? I’m thinking not, so we’ll stick to devices. When your cell conglomerate loses exclusive rights to the Apple iPhone, how do you react? Do you pack it in? Maybe hide in the corner and cry? No. What you do, if you’re AT&T is deliver a new line of 3D technology cells that’ll make everyone forget the iPhone ever existed...at least until they release their version, which if technology has shown us anything, will be very soon...
The LG Thrill 4G should be the next hot commodity in tech circles. The 1 GHz, dual-core processor is sure to make even the most demanding user take a moment to reflect. It seems like just a few months ago we were all excited about touch screens. Now they’re in 3D? Woah...
The 16 GB memory should offer plenty of space for videos, pictures and games, all of which will be available through the LG Space marketplace. No release date has been announced, and all we have to go in is that prices will be announced “in the coming weeks”. Get your wallets ready, because I doubt these guys are going to be cheap...

Samsung’s 2011 LED LCD lines are combining the 3D visuals that so many are becoming accustomed to, and a bevy of compatibilities. Considering the UND6400 isn’t a bad route to take if you’re looking to upgrade your entertainment unit. The Smart TV suite brings the internet into your living room, and the nearly invisible bezel will give your TV the appearance of floating above your entertainment area. Sure, there are better bezel designs when you consider the UND7000, but we’re merely considering aesthetics here, so unless you have some cash that you’re willing to burn, there’s nothing wrong with sticking with the UND6400.
A solid picture pushes this model ahead of other edge-lit designs, and it’s obvious that Samsung made some advancement from similar models from 2010. Sure, it’s a bit pricey, but when you consider the cost of similar products, it’s all relative. Flagship models will often require you to drain the savings account, so keep this in mind before you pass out when checking out the design at your local electronics outlet.
Should you be in the market for a sleek, performance based LED LCD, the Samsung UND6400 should be near the top of your list. If 3D doesn’t appeal to you, save yourself a few bucks and take a look at the 6300. It’ll offer similar features and design without the 3D technology.

Nothing makes fierce competitors hold hands and sing campfire songs like giving them a common enemy, and in this case, that enemy is passive 3D technology. We’ve long known that Sony, Samsung, and Panasonic are avid active 3D pushers, but now they’ve announced that they have a new standard when it comes to 3D specs. Through a deal with Xpand, three of the largest tech companies in the world are setting up the industry for complete active 3D adoption. Will it work? This should be interesting…
LG is actually the biggest competitor that Samsung has, so it’s not surprising to see them as part of this initiative. They’ve long been pushing the passive 3D technology as being “just as good” as the active renditions and cite that the active 3D glasses are much more expensive. What does this “Active 3D Coalition” mean to you? Basically, it means that the prices will likely stay the same but compatibility will become much more efficient. Essentially, you can drop by a friend’s house and use another’s platforms glasses, as the technology will start getting consistent.
We won’t start seeing a change in the market of 3D glasses until next year, but I’ll be stunned if there isn’t an answer from the passive 3D community. LG won’t let this shot go unreciprocated, so look for a retaliation and some more mud-slinging from our 3D giants. Honestly, this entire things has been a blast to watch, and while I do see some differences between active and passive 3D technology, the price tags definitely come into play!

James Cameron is again in the news for 3D. He wants all TV producers to invest more money in the 3D show.
While talking in a Seoul technology forum, he said that filmmakers face many challenges while converting 2D into 3D. According to him people should shoot directly in 3D in place of converting 2D to 3D all over the world as many people today are shooting in 3D. Future belongs to 3D and we are going to have many 3D TVs around us. To show so many programs on it we need thousands of hours CDs of sports, comedy, music and other entertainment.
According to him the concentration should be on 3D content in place of money. People should not bother about money. Since 3D TVs are already in the market now there is no time for converting 2D into 3D. Now the future shoot should be in 3D.
Everybody should learn how to do live 3D shooting. This will bring the cost of 3D shooting down. Everything is available today. The channel, the sets, the only thing which is missing is the content which production people need to get.
James Cameron is one of the few directors who have worked on 3D content with Avatar. Avatar was officially the highest grossing film of all the time. Cameron speaks with Confidence as he can be considered the most experienced director to work on 3D technology.
Avatar is the most expensive film because he used 3D technology which was created from the ground up. All the TV giants like Sony, Samsung, LG and Panasonic will be very happy to know that Cameron is backing 3D technology as these companies have invested very heavily in their 3D TVs.

After the success of his film 3D film Avatar, James Cameron is supporting 3D technology in a big way. And he feels that everyone should go in for 3D.
At the Seoul Technology forum, he threw light on the obstacles the filmmakers had to go through to convert their 2D films into 3D. He stated that the films should be shot in 3D only and one should let go of their inhibition regarding 3D as many filmmakers are already using this technology successfully.
He added that in the near future, even television will be 3D and we would be watching sports, music and other forms of entertainment in 3D. Cameron added that producers in both TV and film industry should put their worries aside and focus to bring out more 3D content as in future they won’t have the time or the money for conversions.
The shooting will have to be live in 3D and costs will be centering around 3D only.
Everything else like sets and channels are already there and one has to generate the content only. Cameron is the only Hollywood director who is so confident about the technology and more so after the success of his 3D fantasy film. In addition to this, Cameron accepted that it was very costly to make the film as he had to set up the 3D technology from scratch.
Companies like Samsung, LG, Panasonic and Sony are happy with the new of Cameron promoting 3D as they are the ones who are into making 3D TVs.
