3D TV from Panasonic

I came out of the Osaka Yodobashi Camera (huge electronics department store) and was a little startled to see a group of people with what looked like VR goggles on.

Turns out it was a demonstration of the new Panasonic 3D Viera TV.

The guy suggested I line up and give it a go, but to be honest, I’m not sure if golf in 3D would be any less tedious and pointless to watch than golf in 2D.

I gave it a miss.

I read somewhere that with the new Sony 3D TVs you get 2 free 3D goggles included with the TV…does this mean if you want to invite friends around to watch a movie or something after the pub you’re gonna have to stock up on 4,5,6 extra goggles or ask people to bring their own?
Bit of a flaw in the plan here I think.

Updated 22/06/10: I tried out a 3D tv the other day at one of the smaller electronic shops (Joshin) and they were showing the golf demo…it’s…well it’s alright I guess.
But it doesn’t look or feel natural so I think after a (short) while I’d rather go back to the 2D TV version. Let my brain do the 3D work.

yes, and these active versions of the 3D glasses are not cheap. £50, £100!

50quid! Really? Even less reason to upgrade to a 3D TV.
