    The Sun: The World's First 3D Newspaper

    ...The Sun is to publish a 3D edition on June 5 complete with 3D glasses, 3D editorial images, 3D adverts and a 3D Soccer World Cup schedule Wall Chart...
    This to include Page 3?

    More seriously when I first read this I suspected some kind of joke/publicity stunt. However the more I think about it the more I see that it ties in nicely with another arm of the Murdoch empire.

    As it says in the article:

    ...at the soccer World Cup and can be expected to contribute to massive awareness of the event being broadcast in 3D by Murdoch's Sky Sports...
    I won't be buying the paper [3d or otherwise] and I won't be watching the overpriced Sky coverage [not a football fan in any case but I would not be watching the Sky coverage even if I were a football fan]

    I am unconvinced of this 3d lark currently, I just cant imaging sitting in the comfort of my own home wearing glasses that would not look out of place on Maurice Moss from the IT Crowd.

    I like it for the Cinema though, am looking forward to some films in 3D!

    This is the exact reason I doubt 3dtv will kick off on the home. Till they work out how to do it without glasses, just cannot see it happening.

    "They" also need to find a way of doing 3D TV which doesn't cause some photo-sensitive epileptics to have seizures...

    I really can't see much interest in having the photos in newspapers in 3D, either. Graphic novels and kids books, yes; newspapers, no. That said, I guess once we're more used to 3D stuff in general, anything 2D will seem dated (much like non-HD stuff does today).
