It's only 3D cause it knows where you are

Since I reference this all of the time, I figured I might as well post it on the site for those of you who haven't seen it.

What you will learn from this video is that 3D is only a perception. Over the next few years, the industry will be pumping out games where you sit on your couch wearing a pair of polarized glasses and get treated to a viewmaster sort of "3D." However, in my opinion, true 3D won't be available until your TV or game console can knows where you are, and how you view the content.

Obviously this becomes a challenge with multiple gamers in the same space, but it's easily fixed by deciding that you don't give a shit about how your friends view the game.

I'm not sure why we haven't seen any examples like this in the real world, but I'm confident that the first company to push forward with this type of 3D is going to have a real successful game on their hands.
