I think 3D TV's are already obsolete tech. Anything that requires you to watch at a physical box, be it in 3D or not is sooo 20th century don't you
find?! No, I see the evolution of home entertainment grow towards the full holographic rendering of the movie in your living room. You'll be
literally IN the movie, can you imagine?!
I am thinking of making a veldt in my room. My bedroom is my computer room. Its a multi function room, and as I said previously I spent 570 bucks on a
projector to project my screen on the wall. Thats the newest thing.
And if you have a computer already, then it can do 3D and so 570 bucks as opposed to 3 thousand for a 3D TV.
I will show you what it looks like...
So I found a deal on that at VUUGO for 570 bucks. And its whats called a short throw projector so it can throw a large image on the wall from not that
far away. So its 9 feet away and I have a 7 foot screen but what I really wanted was an ULTRA short throw projector. And with one of those, I could
have potentially filled the entire wall.
So if you can fill the entire wall, then you can make a veldt. And a veldt is a wall that has a 3D projection on it that looks real.
So instead of a wall, you could be looking out at Niagra Falls. Or any scenery that you can get a video feed of or from a recorded feed in a loop,
like a wall that is an aquarium.
The G20 conference that was held in Canada recently used that technology to stage remote conferences that had the same scenery as the main event which
was in Northern Canada. Part of that event was held in Toronto as the Toronto Summit, and a veldt was created to tie the conferences together.
Apparently Wikipedia objects to my calling it a veldt.
But it comes from a story by Ray Bradbury.
an artificial lakefront based on Muskoka region's cottage country. The Northern Ontario Oasis included donated canoes, a shoreline with
deck chairs for journalists to cool off, and a mobile phone recharging station. The background was a large screen that portrayed various images of the
Muskoka region. The cost of the international media centre, the Experience Canada pavilion, and artificial lake, which were $23 million, $1.9
million, and $57,000 respectively, was the target of controversie
So for under a thousand dollars you can turn your wall in your room, any room, into a live scene, and these projector bulbs are so bright, they
project a life like image with all the lights on in the room no problem.
The future of this might be to give people a view from their apartment, not through windows, but through fake windows by projecting a nice scenic view
onto a wall.
I will never ever ever go back to a normal LG type monitor. Try the 7 foot hi def projection screen, You will not go back to squinting while looking
at details on your screen. And in my apartment we have 4 large screen TV's.
3 guys sharing an apartment. And my one roommate was soooo proud of himself when he bought a bigger LG monitor than I had. Well needless to say we are
no longer in the same league, now that I have the projector.
