James Cameron Still Pushing Hard for 3D with the Next Avatar Movie
Interesting comment from James Cameron at the SMPTE today: “I’m going to push. Not only for better tools, workflow, high dynamic range and high frame rates — the things we are working toward, I’m still very bullish on 3D, but we need brighter projection, and ultimately I think it can happen — with no glasses. We’ll get there.”
Microsoft’s future is 3D
In the future, the Windows 3D Initiative see 3D content playing a much larger and more integral role in the way we use our computers and share information. 3D might become a new category alongside pictures and videos where we can store and share memories – choosing to keep them digitally or 3D print them for posterity should that seemingly ever farther off promise of consumer 3D printing ubiquity ever come to fruition.

3D Universe Theater
2D Sky maps are a bit boring. That is why Charlie Hoey decided to create a website with a real 3D representation of some 2 million stars.
The Gaia satellite (an ESA project) orbits beyond the moon and is carefully mapping the 3D position of every point of light it sees. Mr Hoey took the data and used WebGL to create his 3D Universe theater.
