    I saw it (eventually) last night. It was teh forst 3d forl I'd seen in teh cinemas and I was very impressed. I loved every minute of it, however I did think that the portrayal of the 'bulldoze and be damned' corporate and military was a bit OTT.
    Still, I kept the glasses. Do they work on home 3d Blu-Ray and DVD does anyone know?

    Assuming you have a 3D hd tv it should do but good question though would be nice to know

    Meh! The horrid red and green paper ones just don't work, and my 3 year old tears them up anyway.

    There are so many different formats of 3D it's hard to tell to be honest. You've got;

    Spectral separation
    Pulfrich
    Lenticular or barrier screens
    Interference filter technology
    Eclipse method
    Polarization systems
    Anaglyph

    Majority use different classes, colours and types. Avatar falls under Polarization systems I believe. Stereoscopy or (Real3D). Anaglyph is the old red/green glasses, some are red/blue glasses, some are real effects without glasses.

    Most new 3D TV's are to be introduced without the need for glasses.

    Sorry - what I mean is that I don't think its currently a true runner yet as laws of physics haven't been bent enough to give a 3D image you'd want to watch without glasses to your standard familiy living room with the chairs/sofas arranged in a 270 arc around the room

    I'm personally betting on a true 3D tech with a sort of tank arrangement with a fine mist or a solid cube with holographic material inside and lasers might do the job

    Google and marketing can sometimes conspire together

    regards

    I think the technology overly relies on LED/LCD combinations project on two screens rather than one. I did see a showcase on either LG or Sony's website showing the principal behind the technology.

    This link for example: Sony Bravia 3DTV - First Look review - Pocket-lint

    The Sony one does this for example: "Back to Sony's 3DTV and the technology works by delivering two 1080p (Full HD) pictures simultaneously on the screen. To the naked eye it's a jumbled mess of imagery that you even after a couple of beers you would find hard to decode"

    Eeek, thats a glasses one, but the same glasses as Avatar

    And I knew there was a working example of the technology.

    @ Harrods: High-definition TV in three dimensions – and no glasses - Times Online

    LG True 3-D TV

    So yes, there are true 3D TV's with no use of glasses, but obviously prototypes/display models at present.

    Yes, there was a demo unit at BETT. The screen had some sort of lens over it which made for a 3D effect, no glasses needed. Unfortunatly I have no idea what company was selling this, or even where in BETT it was - I just remember walking around the corner and being surpised by the 3D screen, then thinking "gosh, bet that's expensive..." and then wandering off to look at something else.

    I suppose the 3D TV [ type ] which will take off will be the one that the Porn industry decides to go with.

    I seem to remember Stone had something like that above their enquiry desk. Reminded me of the old style 3d photos with a ridged overlay on it. Looked good, didn`t ask how much. Just thanked Jo for the large box of pens she had given me for the edugeek saturday freebies!
