These flat panel 3D screens are nothing but headache boxes. The 3D is achieved by first showing the frame for the left eye, then the frame for the right, back and forth lots of times. Unless they have fixed the 'switch' rate, or whatever you call the time it takes to go from right to left and back, then no dice. On the versions that I saw last year the switch was much too slow and though it did appear to be 3D (which was cool), you couldn't look for more than a few seconds without overloading your vision and shutting your eyes in pain.
Sorry, but I also saw some demos of flat panel 3D screen 2 months ago, and there were no such frame per left/right eye and you could have a continued viewing experience without pain.
The 3D experince was great. But then this is a demo, and the sequences are selected. So I would be very interested to see the result with everyday TV programs
Shouldn't the specifications indicate resolution in all 3 dimensions (i.e. 1080 x 768 x 1024 fer instance)?
Some people are far more sensitive to these kinds of visual effects than others. That's why the 'rainbow' effect on early 2x DLPs caused some people problems. Just because it's comfortable viewing for you, doesn't mean that a significant number of people wont be bothered by it.
In truth, most people get headaches after extended periods with fake 3D displays, no matter the underlying technology that is used. Your eyes are focussing on an unnatural point in space, which leads to fatigue of the eye muscles.
