Um, hey, remember when 3D was going to be the next big thing in TV?
It was only three years ago at CES that 3-D was supposedly set to take its place after HD and, earlier, color as the next breakthrough in TV technology. In movies, sports and more, 2-D was done.
This year, many of the sets on display support 3-D, thanks in part to it costing less to implement, but few of them are showing off any 3-D footage on these sets (aside from a massive 3-D video wall at LG's exhibit, a repeat from last year). I'm sure it's a pain to keep track of hundreds of active-shutter 3-D glasses handed out to attendees... wait, that's an obstacle to the entire 3-D concept, except for "passive" sets that only demand the kind of non-powered, plain plastic glasses you'd wear in a theater.
Either way, it's telling when nobody seems to want to mount a sales pitch for the headline feature of three years ago.
