Beyond the second dimension


3D Specs The success of Avatar, the second highest grossing movie of all time has virtually every industry salivating and attempting to jump on the 3D bandwagon. 3D TVs and monitors are ultra cool but will have a price-tag to scare away all but the most fat-wallet laden innovators for a year or two yet. And we haven’t even gone through the pain of competing platforms, you know it will happen.

In the meantime, developers and manufactures will look to smaller screen devices to pilot technology and increase user acceptance of 3D applications, and of using goggles or glasses. I hope message alert and simple icons forming the beginnings of a head-up display will be combined to increase utility and future-factor.
