Ok, so maybe the title led you to believe that you should rock these new specs while out on the beach, but we really can’t substantiate that claim. In fact, no one’s really claiming that. Instead, we’re taking a look at the Vuzix Wrap 1200 3D specs and how much better they look than the disposable jobs you get at your local Cineplex. But, there’s more to these puppies than meets the eye. In fact, they simulate a 75-inch 3D viewing screen directly in the lenses.
Imagine sitting on an airplane and enjoying a 3D flick without a screen anywhere in sight. This is some Strange Days stuff right here. You’ll be getting 852 x 480-pixel mini-monitors that deliver 16:9 visuals directly to the glasses. With an iPhone port, you’ll be streaming content from your handheld device which only heightens the convenience.
From 2D to 3D content, you’ll be able to view anaglyph or side-by-side formats, which should further expand your options. The Vizix Wrap 1200’s use a pair of AA batteries to deliver up to 3 hours of viewing. Though they seem incredible, there’s definitely something to consider: they’re going to cost you around $500…yikes…

If you are an owner of LG Android smartphone, you may be able to lead the way in mobile 3D video. YouTube and LG entered into a partnership deal that will allow the users to view, record and share 3D pictures without glasses.
This arrangement should offer a more convenient experience to the viewers, though the content is limited to a few special big screens. It also assures to increase the content collection.
Francisco Varela, Head of YouTube partnerships said that only the major movie studios in Hollywood have used the 3D technology until recently. The new LG Optimus 3D allows anyone in the world to shoot 3D videos and upload them to YouTube. They can share their 3D videos with their friends easily. He added that they are enthralled to see the creative videos captured by the community.
However, we do not know much more than this at present. The phone’s specs remain to be a mystery, except the fact that it will be dual core, dual channel and dual memory. LG does not give any hint about the price.
We are not sure how many people are waiting to see 3D content on their cell phones.
YouTube and LG make this move to make 3D video more popular.

Sorry to disappoint, but this isn’t the post that gives you the good news that the guys down at Dell finally redesigned the XPS line, but the latest update to the line is pretty cool in its own accord. Their two performance oriented laptops, XPS 15 and XPS 17 saw a spec bump a couple of days ago, which basically lifted every internal aspect. First off, they’re running the new Sandy Bridge, or if you’d like, Huron River processors, a wide range of nVidia GeForce 5 series cards to service all your graphic intensive needs, and even a full HD 3D ready display, if you like. The 15” does also receive a baseline price bump, adding $200 to last years price, making a total of $1049. There are tons of options available to spec out your next XPS, so head over to Dell.com and check them out.

The XPS line may add a lot of weight to our bags, but they still remain one of our favorite laptops of all time. As expected, Dell announced the 2011 refresh for their XPS line of laptops, adding some much awaited features.
The top- of- the- line 15 and 17 inch laptops still look the same, but now carry the second generation of core- i chips from intel inside them. They also have better graphic options for those of you who want more power on that end. You will have an option to upgrade to a higher resolution display, and some models will even let you go 3D. The prices on these refreshes remain somewhat the same. The top of the line XPS 17” 1080p 3D laptop starts off at $1,099 and goes upwards depending on what you add in there. As a baseline, you get a pretty impressive 2.3Ghz i5-2410M processor, 4 gigs of RAM, an nVidia GeForce GT550M, and a 500GB hard drive. The display is a 1080p 3D display. You can opt out of a 3D display and get the same package at $899.
The XPS 15 did get a price bump to $1,069, a good $200 more than last year, but you do get what you pay for. This beast includes an i7-2620M processor, 500 GB hard disk space, 4GB RAM and an nVidia GeForce GT525M with Optimus technology. While you can max out the RAM on this to 8GB, you can take the 17” model all the way up to 16”.
Its quite an impressive refresh, but hardly a surprising one. Hopefully we see a new design for the XPS line next year.

We’ve been dancing around this fire for a few years now, and while I’m still waiting for hologram football games, the latest prototype from Samsung definitely proves that they intend on staying on top of the 3D television market. At a FPD Chinese trade event, a prototype was debuted proving that they have indeed been working on a glasses-free 3D television.
The 55-inch screen is quite a sight, and with nine various viewing angles available, it will assuredly accommodate a living room full of people. The ability to turn the 3D aspect off and deliver a quality 2D picture will excite many, as well. How is this possible? It’s all about light refraction, actually. The optical refraction index of LCD panels that covers the primary LCD screen allows the television to deliver the 3D effects to the viewer. In other words, though it isn’t exact, one could claim that the television itself is actually wearing the glasses.
A CCFL backlight display centers as the main viewing apparatus, but Samsung admits that this will probably be replaced with an LED backlight before the unit is released. While the prototype created quite a stir, the company reminds us that it is still in development, and that consumers won’t likely have the opportunity to purchase the television for a few years, yet.
Am I intrigued? Of course I am. Am I excited? Mm…that remains to be seen. Will I be getting one as soon as they are released?

JVC releases the GS-TD1, the first HD 3D camcorder released for consumer use. Home movies will never be the same when seen in stellar 3D
At CES, there was plenty of chatter regarding the March release of JVC’s new 3D camcorder. The company held their word, and now the GD-TD1 3D camcorder is available, and surprisingly enough, the listed price of $1699.95 is actually below the initial expected retail cost of around $2000. I know, I agree…we’re still around $2000, but hey, with new technology any lower price should be welcomed.
Because this is the first HD 3D camcorder released, it’ll be interesting to see how it’s received. Not only will your family memories be captured in state of the art 3D, but they’ll be shown again and again via any Blu-ray compatible player.
For shooting videos, users will enjoy at 3 ½ inch touch LCD screen that will show what you’re shooting in 3D without the use of glasses. Everio MediaBrowser 3D software will host the suite of content capabilities.
The GS-TD1 by JVC will definitely benefit in what we call “curiosity sales”. The public will become so enamored with the ability to shoot their own videos in 3D that we’ll definitely see quite a bit of interest. However, where things get interesting relies on the actual performance of the unit. Sure, things look good, but because it’s a first generation, one can only assume that certain kinks will be need to be worked out through subsequent editions.
With a $1700 price tag, the full-HD 3D camcorder from JVC will show just how enamored with 3D technology the public has become. Sure, we love it in the movies, and we even love it in our living rooms, but is there really going to be a market for 3D home movies? Um, of course there will be, but I’m sure that in order to find full mainstream interest, the price will need to come down just a bit.

HTC’s new EVO 3D combined size and power. Details emerge as we finally get our hands on the 3D capable device
Our first response…surprised. You’d think that with everything that the new 3D cell devices offer, they’d be massive. Nope. Instead, when we first handled the EVO 3D, it was easy to mistake it for the EVO 4G. Complete with stereoscopic 3D effects, the device isn’t akward or bulky.
The 4.3-inch screen makes for reasonable viewing experiences, and the 3D quality isn’t bad at all. Obviously, if you move too far to the right or left, you lose the effect, but hey, that’s a small price to pay for having 3D movies in the palm of your hand.
Toggling between 2D and 3D is simple (through a side-board switch), but it only controls the dynamic of the camera. The software controls much of the content, so you’ll be able to sit back and let this baby do what it does best: deliver 3D with surprising quality wherever you are.
Should you find yourself intrigued by 3D cell advancement, this isn’t a bad place to start. Surprisingly small, and packing plenty of punch, the EVO 3D from HTC is sure to find its way into several greedy little mitts. I know my greedy little mitts can set it down…

Sony announces 4 new models of AV 3D ready receivers that will be available for pre-sale at www.sonystyle.com
Earlier this month, Sony announced that the latest AV line of receivers will showcase a high-end unit that will stream live digital music. Also facilitating 3D, all of the models can be pre-ordered at www.sonystyle.com, and will be released to the public in the next couple of months.
The STR line, which starts under $500, is bolstered by the high end STR-DN1020 receiver which allows access to streaming online music via an Ethernet connection. Digital libraries available on your PC will also be playable. Those willing to pick one of these up and accessorize it with Sony’s HomeShare cordless speaker system will assuredly have a sound setup that will be the envy of the party.
The other STR models, the DH820, DH720 and DH520, are all 3D capable, and feature one of our favorite toys: the Digital Cinema Auto Calibration. By analyzing your room, the system makes adjustments to ensure that you are getting the best possible sound for your entertainment experience. Are they becoming aware? Man, we hope not, but heck, we’ll sacrifice just about anything in the name of killer electronics.
If you are using the 1020, you’ll likely have a surround sound experience that has been previously unmatched. Automatic Phase Matching and Sound Optimizer platforms ensure that your system is running at peak performance, and takes much of the guess work out of sound optimization.
Again, with the flagship 1020 checking in at $500, it’s no wonder that Sony is offering to pre-sell the units. Sony is becoming more involved in the 3D movement with every release, so expect our friends to start making a little noise.

(Join http://www.facebook.com/pages/3D-Show/193397917351402 to stay updated) Will live concerts be the same after something like this? The Foo Fighters are getting into the 3D movement by performing in a San Fernando Valley studio and broadcasting it in theatres across the country. Their latest album, “Wasting Light” is due out next week, and fans in thirty states will be able to enjoy a performance as well as a documentary of the band’s time in the studio. With all of the footage shot in 3D, it’s natural to wonder if the age of "live" concerts as we know it is coming to an end.
The documentary and "private" concert will air on Tuesday, which signals an interesting trend in the movie theatre industry, as well. During the week, theatres sit empty for the most part, usually operating at less than 5% capacity. By offering up some non-traditional programming, this could open the door to an entirely new market for movie theatres.
Imagine the craze when Miley Cyrus is performing a “one night only” theatre performance in 3D! The place would be crazy. And while she may only be able to sell 30,000 tickets to a single arena, how many could she sell in 50? I know, I know…I don’t mean to be blasphemous…the Foo Fighters are far too cool to be in an article with Miley Cyrus, but you get the point.
Once concerts have been conquered, what’s next? A 3D Super Bowl?
