‘Glasses-free’ 3D has taken another step towards the mainstream, as Toshiba announces a price and release date for the first large set to hit the home.
On December 10, Toshiba’s REGZA 553X is also capable of ‘4K’ resolutions – four times current hi-def sets.
Sadly, the price should ensure the ‘naked eye’ 3D set doesn’t hit the mainstream straight away – it will be £7,400, and only available in Japan. It will launch in the UK early next year, price to be confirmed.
It could mark a revolution in 3D televisions – consumers are still lukewarm about the technology, and most surveys indicate that the problem is that people aren’t comfortable wearing glasses.
Unlike previous ‘glasses-free’ technologies, Toshiba’s uses a ‘face tracking’ system so that each person sees ‘perfect’ 3D.
Earlier ‘glasses free’ sets, such as ones pioneered by Philips, required you to be sat precisely in front of them to see 3D rather than a weird blur – and even then the effect was jarring and artificial.
Toshiba’s technology uses high-powered computers in the ‘back’ of the television to ‘aim’ separate beams of parallax 3D at each viewer.
‘The glasses-free 3D technology is based on the stereoscopic principle of simultaneously delivering a picture for the left eye, and another one with a small offset (parallax), for the right eye to achieve the 3D effect,’ says the company.
‘To deliver a glasses-free 3D image and experience, a range of lenticular lenslets guide the dedicated images to each viewer.The ZL2 is able to provide 3D images for up to nine different viewing positions, enabling multiple people to enjoy simultaneous 3D viewing, with no glasses required.’
The ‘lenslets’ are tiny lenses that ‘focus’ the image towards each viewers, using ‘face tracking’ to ensure each person sees a correct left eye and right eye image.
Early tech demos have been highly impressive – and Toshiba is well ahead of rival TV companies in ‘naked eye’ 3D. Most sets from rivals such as LG are around 25 inches.
‘In addition, to tailor the viewing experience to the viewers’ actual positions in front of the TV, the 55ZL2 features face tracking technology. At the touch of a button, it is able to detect the viewers’ position and to adjust the viewing zones accordingly by moving the lenslets as required.’
Companies such as Sony are already shooting films in 4K – a super-high-def resolution touted as the ‘next generation’ of high definition. Toshiba’s set is the first consumer TV with the technology – although there are no video players on the market capable of showing anything in 4K, or even any discs stored in the format.
The TV can also ‘upscale’ any 2D content into 3D – although it remains to be seen how convincing this function is. Other televisions’ attempts to ‘upscale’ into 3D have looked unconvincing.
What’s Next? free standing hologram TV that looks like people are in your living room?
Can George Lucas predict the future?
This is amazing technology, by the way before you spend thousands of dollars on a new 3D TV you might want to get a depth perception test. It would really suck if you find out you don’t have depth perception after spending thousands.
The ad is true people do not want to wear glasses just to watch TV especially those of us that don’t normally wear glasses, also what do you do if you wear glasses? The 3D TV’s I have seen have glasses that look like sunglasses, they can’t fit over or clip to existing glasses. I wonder if this technology will have adverse effects on health: will watching 3D TV regularly cause loss of vision or depth perception? Will it enhance depth Perception? Will parents still say don’t sit too close to the TV you will go blind!
There is no doubt that this technology will be in the US and will someday, very soon, maybe in the next 5-10yrs it will be affordable. When HDTV and digital cable first came out, people said there is no way I’m going to pay to replace all my TV’s, but there is no more analog TV and just look at the HDTV and 3D TV sales.
What will be next? I don’t know, but the future is bright……………. and high def 3D!
PS Peter Jackson: Hurry up with the Hobbit already!!!

Flexible future: Forget the iPhone, here’s the smartphone made out of ‘paper’ that will shape with your pocket
By DAILY MAIL REPORTER

The PaperPhone’s flexible display makes it more portable that any current mobile computer
In an industry where unbreakable and smaller are best, the world’s first interactive paper computer looks set to dominate for years to come.
The PaperPhone has a flexible electronic display that is set to herald a new generation of computers.
Extremely lightweight and made out of a thin-film, the prototype device can do everything a smartphone currently does.
Prototype: The PaperPhone has a flexible electronic display, is extremely lightweight, made out of a thin-film, and can do everything a smartphone currently does
It can store books, play music, send text messages – and, of course, make phone calls.
Most impressively, the PaperPhone uses no power when nobody is interacting with it.
Inventor Roel Vertegaal, the director of Queen’s University Human Media Lab in Kingston, Ontario, said: ‘This is the future. Everything is going to look and feel like this within five years.
‘This computer looks, feels and operates like a small sheet of interactive paper, meaning that when users are reading they don’t feel like they are holding a sheet of glass or metal.
‘You interact with it by bending it into a cell phone, flipping the corner to turn pages, or writing on it with a pen.’
Arm-band: The device uses no power when nobody is interacting with it
Its display consists of a 9.5cm diagonal, thin-film flexible E Ink display.
The flexible form of the display makes it much more portable that any current mobile computer – it will shape with your pocket.
Being able to store and interact with documents on larger versions of these light, flexible computers means offices will no longer require paper or printers.
‘The paperless office is here,’ said Dr Vertegaal. ‘Everything can be stored digitally and you can place these computers on top of each other just like a stack of paper, or throw them around the desk.’
Dr Vertegaal will officially unveil his paper computer on Tuesday at the Association of Computing Machinery’s Computer Human Interaction 2011 conference in Vancouver.
WTF!! A flexible display? A paper phone? A paper computer? A thin flexible computer if it can be made affordable this technology can boost us far into the future. A computer small and flexible can be in stalled in almost everything. Now take this technology and make it from heat/cold resistant materials and you can truly can put it in almost everything. The applications are limitless. Cheap, disposable technology. The computer in your appliance is broken. Don’t worry just pull it out and plug in another. The low power consumption makes it even more attractive. With the advent of this technology are flying cars and laser guns far out of reach? Maybe, maybe not…
Another modern invention:
A gadget James Bond would be proud of: Motorola mobile is the first smartphone to operate using fingerprint recognition
- The ATRIX can be plugged into a range of docks that convert it into a laptop, personal computer, media centre, or sat-nav
It is the mobile phone designed to appeal to a man’s inner James Bond – or those with secrets.
The Motorola ATRIX is the first smartphone to operate using fingerprint recognition to ensure it can only be accessed by the genuine owner.
The ATRIX owner swipes their finger on the touchscreen a number of times when it is fresh out of the box to identify them as the authorized user.
From that point on, every time they touch the power button it will recognise the fingerprint and approve operation.
The ATRIX is marketed as the most powerful smartphone in the world on the basis it can be plugged into a range of docks that convert it into a laptop, personal computer, media centre, or a sat-nav.
There is an eye-catching ‘lapdock’, which looks like a slimline laptop but has no computer processor. Here the phone sits in a cradle while the dock is used like a normal laptop.
A second dock turns the phone into a home computer. It connects the handset to a screen via a cable, while it has a number of USB ports and Bluetooth wireless links to a full-size mouse and keyboard.
The ATRIX software, called ‘Webtop’, then allows the keyboard, mouse and screen to be used as a full-size computer, including the sort of internet browser normally found on a home PC.
The handset’s software also includes an entertainment centre that is controlled via an infrared remote control that communicates with the dock.
Using this, it is possible to connect the phone to a high-definition TV or speakers to play back films and music.
The ATRIX has a dual core processor, which allows for fast operation, two antennae for simultaneous downloading and uploading from the web, plus a large on-board memory.
Other benefits include a four-inch high-definition screen, a five mega-pixel camera and a video camera on the front for video calling.
Jeremy Marks, of Spymaster, the leading professional suppliers of security equipment, said: ‘Biometric fingerprint security is the best way to protect your device.
‘This type of technology offers consumers a new level of security surpassing anything we have seen before on a smartphone.’
Owners in the U.S. have been impressed with the ground-breaking security feature. One said: ‘All phones should have a fingerprint reader like this – it’s the future.
‘Typing in an unlock password is so fiddly that I don’t bother with unlock security (and that worries me).’
The website Techradar gave the ATRIX four out of five stars.
It said: ‘It’s rather amazing to connect your phone to an HDTV and play music, watch a movie, type up a real document, and even do your online banking with the Bluetooth keyboard and mouse connected, all from a 135-gram phone.’
The ATRIX is to be sold on the Orange network.
Spokeswoman Nicola Shenton said: ‘This really is the ultimate smart phone for gadget fans packed full of tech wizardry and features that any aspiring spy would be proud of.
‘With its multimedia accessories and ground-breaking fingerprint swipe access, this is an innovative handset that Orange is proud to be bringing to the UK first.’
Motorola ATRIX is free to Orange customers on a £35 per month, 24 month contract, which adds up to £840. This package includes 600 minutes of calls, a 750 MB data allowance, unlimited texts, 50 MMS messagers and unlimited wi-fi per month.
Some websites are offering the handset only, without any Sim card, for £435.
Check out this phone! it truly is a computer in a phone! Biometric Fingerprint reader, dual core processor, blue tooth, infrared, hd screen, docking station etc
The ability to make inexpensive, reliable biometric readers helps take security to the next level! As a computer geek this is amazing! Couple this with the aforementioned flexible display computer/smartphone and there is no stopping us! Well except maybe Skynet? (For Reference see the movie The Terminator if you haven’t already)
