Grundig Tharus - 3D TV Without the GlassesWhen I think of 3D images, the first thing that comes to mind are those gaudy blue and red cardboard glasses. Well, not any more. Grundig, a European leader in consumer electronics, has teamed up with X3D technologies to develop the world's first 3D television. This flat panel LCD displays 8 images of slightly different perspective at different angles to simulate the way our brain perceives depth. The result is a fully 3D image without the need for any flimsy glasses.
It was just a year ago when Grundig first demoed their 3D display technology at the IFA in Berlin. Thanks to AVING.net we have new photos of the Grundig Tharus 3D TV sets on display.
In these photos we see soccer being demoed by the display – and rightfully so. I foresee sports broadcasts and video games being amongst the earliest adaptors of this technology. Now when I'm watching hockey, I'll get to feel like I witnessed the Toronto Maple Leafs lose from the sidelines rather than my own living room.
No word yet on the resolution of the displays, but even if it is based on HD technology, you can expect the display resolution to be considerably less than what you're used to.
Thanks to Bornrich.org for the heads up.
