    So flat then? People with one eye don't have working depth perception. 3D TV in any form is a gimmick.

    by 2030 no one will use version numbers because they're uncool, so every version of windows will just be called "Windows" and we have to guess which one you're talking about. (it's already started)

    What an odd statement, of course they'll see it flat. Most people aren't one eyed though. I can almost guarantee that's not why he asked the question.

    And lol at your gimmick comment.

    So a "physical" 3d image suspended in air, would offer no improvement over normal tv.

    By then, the number of people that report being touched up by Jimmy will be more than the number of people who have ever lived.

    For TV?

    No, no improvement - Maybe it could empty a wallet faster?

    i guess it would mean you have less carpet to clean thanks to some floor standing unit. I dont really watch TV to concern myself with how something looks.

    If that was the case, books would be rubbish and no one would read them.

    the same as we have now but more efficient/faster/smaller

    not much has really changed in the last 20 years and i doubt it will in the next 20 either.

    apart from the internet and mobile phones nothing life changing happened in the last 20?

    Media storage has seen significant improvement over the last 20 years. Perhaps storing data on crystalline technology will help read/write performance and capacity to unimaginable levels at very low cost.

    Look at a 20 year old video. So much has changed, we just don't realize, then there's the stuff that isn't public, medicine, milliatry, space, even manufacturing process. All the behind the scene stuff.

    I'll add 3d printers to be common, been a massive uptake in the last 12months. Not every household, but available for anyone who wants one at an afford price.

    yea i know theres all the background industry stuff but for the every day person not much will really change

    pretty much everything in a house of today was in alot of houses of the 90s just bigger , slower and more simple.

    even the internet or a simple form of it.

    So because you don't use a piece of technology it has no benefit or is a gimmic.
    What an absurd position.

    Oh wait they are already using 3d TVs to help surgeons, product devlopment and other industries and will only improve as the technology gets better.

    And most people do watch TV and a decent percentage of that group likes 3d.
    The biggest problem with 3D ATM is directors abusing the 3D and exaggerating it. With real 3G images projected into the air, you can't really do this. So you get the depth, with out the darkness, without the headaches or eye strain and you head doesn't get confused when the direct does stupid exagerated 3d scenes.
    Directors have a lot to arwnser for, for the large group that dislike 3d.
