So, just in case you’ve been living under a rock, I’ll start out by explaining what the heck I’m talking about.
Recently, it seems like everything is in 3D. Have you noticed? There are 3D movies, 3D TV shows, 3D Sports broadcasts etc. Well, that’s all well and good, but there’s one problem with this whole thing.
In order to watch 3D content in your home, you need a TV that supports it.
That’s right. Just after you thought you were done upgrading all of your TVs to support HD, something new comes out.
These 3D TVs are the new thing, and according to the tech news and TV production companies, it’s here to stay.
Well, I think its stupid. (Yeah, I just came out and said it).
Are you kidding me? I do not want to have to wear special 3d glasses to watch TV. Plus, I already wear prescription glasses, how am I supposed to wear 3d glasses and be able to see the TV at the same time?
Now, that I’ve explained and griped, let me get to the rest.
I have a conspiracy theory and I think it’s a good one. Doesn’t it seem a little convenient that once HD TV sales begin to saturate the market, the TV manufacturers come up with a new reason for you to buy a TV? Personally, I don’t completely understand why it requires a special TV to display 3D content. Can’t they just broadcast it in 3d and then you can just wear the glasses to make it work?
Now, I’m sure there is some very technical reason for having to get a “3d enabled” TV, but don’t you think there should be a way to work around that? One that, I don’t know, doesn’t require you to buy a new tv for over $1000?
Plus, I cannot be convinced that over the next few years, everyone will be sitting around their TVs wearing nerdy 3d glasses to watch Football. Just picture that for a minute. A room full of people watching the big game, all wearing special 3d glasses that they brought from home. LOL.
So, what do you think? Is 3DTV just a fad? Is it just a way to keep TV makers’ profits soaring? Or, is it here to stay?
