Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that 3D TVs that require no glasses are getting closer to being publicly released. Discuss here if you think this change will spur a much faster adoption rate, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

I'd have to look at one first before I'd ever consider it.

My few attempts at watching a 3D movie left me with a headache so I've yet to watch more than about 15 min's with the glasses on then off they came and I continued watching without them.

If not having to wear crappy 3D glasses meant no headache, I would definitely consider it. However, I'm quite sure the strain that caused the headache wasn't due to the glasses but the media. Personally, from what I've seen of it..........3D just doesn't do anything for me so even if I could watch a 3D TV without getting a headache, I'd still not likely want to spend the extra money to own it. It's a gimmick and not one I'm interested in to be completely honest.

However, if we ever invent working holographic's, then I'll sit up and take notice.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

"Would you buy a 3D TV if it didn't require glasses?"

No. 2D is just far more comfortable to watch, even without the glasses.
Besides, I recently purchased a 2D Samsung 63" plasma. Not gonna upgrade for another 10 years.

IMO, there are some things that shouldn't be home grown. Clam chowder, Prime rib and 3d movies.

Partake of these items where they are best served. The first two at your favorite restaurants, the third at your favorite movie theater.

Here in the UK there were experiments some years ago using 3D without glasses (on normal TV sets of the day).

They were not quite so impressive but they did work and you got no headache.
With advancements, including high definition digital TV, it will probably be even better.

I've no idea whether it will catch on, although it's true to say that so far 3D has never lasted long, despite the upsurge in 3D movies in the 50's and 60's.

If it is ever going to catch on then without glasses has to be the way to go.

Please come back and let us know how you got on.

I just recently got my first lcd screen tv so maybe I'll get around to 3 D in say 30 or 40 years. I have a 36 inch sanyo that weighs like 90 lbs. that has a beutiful picture. I paid good money for this set when it was new several years ago am I supposed to just throw that money away because someone has something new on the market? The only reason I got the new lcd was because I got it for less than a hundred bucks new and it is a 46 inch. It was part of the deal for setting up a network at a friends electronics shop. 3D has never really impressed me either. I now have 3 spare tv's in good working shape plus the 4 around the house including the new Phillips lcd. When all of them go out and all that is left is 3 D then maybe most likely I'll go used though.

Basically while I love technology I am not one of those that has to have the newest things on the market. If what I have still works then I don't need a new one. I have spent time when I didn't have anything to spare watching a 19 inch with rabbit ears and tin foil so when I do get my hands on some money it seems it lasts a good deal longer than it used too now. Who knows when I may not have it again?

30 or 40yrs is a very long time and i believe the 3d technology will vanish.
