A Reminder of Today and a Look at Tomorrow
University of Applied Arts Vienna
You attempt to test the 3D monitor capabilities and search the net for appropriate images with little success. Everything seems to be geared for conventional displays. Even general-purpose software products don't use these facilities. You finally locate suitable image files but have misplaced the 3D glasses.
At last you find them.
Stunning 3D scenes appear to reach out towards you. You want to interact with them but interaction using keyboard and mouse is far from easy. They are unsuitable for navigation in 3D space.
And now you notice the image quality of the new display in 2D mode is not as good as your old monitor either. You consign it to the attic and your conventional display is again your window into the digital world.Dr. Barry BlundellBritish Computer Society
„This 3D monitor is only good if you can stand wearing the glasses every time you work in 3D. Thanks to the doubled-up internal LCDs, the regular Windows desktop looks fuzzy when compared to my Dell 19-inch LCD. Good for 3D, so-so for 2D.“gizmodo.com

No market share? No incentive to develop for WOWvx!
No programs for WOWvx? No customer interest!
„Although 3D technology poses a myriad of benefits and potential, the infrastructure to support this industry is extremely fragmented and embryonic.
While there are numerous companies working on bringing this technology to the mainstream, there is no central platform coordinating this sector.“
U.S. Display Consortium
“What is remarkable is that each application has developed its own solutions, culture and technology with little awareness of other applications with similar needs and technology.”
in Entertainment and Art
“We learned that you can't use the same filmmaking process. The shots can't be too close up, or the shots have to be longer sometimes.”
Tim CheungHead of character animationDreamWorks Animation
“It looked blurrier than Polar Express 3D and about as good as the old colored-glasses films. The scenes weren't designed for 3D so it becomes a distraction. It gets to the big action scene and you have put your glasses on. Suddenly you can't see Superman's face clearly and the screen looks smaller and faded. I was actually wishing it wasn't in 3D.”

„ 5000 digital 3D screenswill be installed in the U.S.by May 2009 “
Joshua GreerPresident of Real D
„As a movie device, 3D sucks, always has, maybe always will. The problems are: (1) It‘s pointless except when sticking things in the audience's eyes; (2) It is distracting when not pointless; and (3) It dims the colors and makes the image indistinct.“Spy-Kids 3D: Game Over (Reality Camera System 3D, 2003)
„In general, I haven't been a fan of 3D, with its murky images and pathetic little cardboard glasses. But IMAX does it right, and I was astonished by how effective it is on the big screen. That made it the best 3D viewing experience I had ever had.“Polar Express (Imax Digital 3D, 2005)
