Texas Instruments stands out with 3D TV

Hector

I dont understand what is new about this?

I saw this 3D TV article headline and thought that this was new, but what they have described has been around for years.

I have a pair of edimensional shutter glasses and a Dell 6 foot DLP display and have been playing games and watching 3D films for about 4 years now.

The technology for PC gaming in 3D this way has been around for longer (the NVIDIA stereo drivers are up to version 7 or 8 now I think), but I do know for at least 3 years the software has been around to study video and pick out slower scrolling backgrounds and work out the 3D views of it to turn any film and TV program into 3D.

So am I missing something, or has Texas spent R&D time on re inventing the wheel?

confused,
