Cinemas (at least here in the UK) are investing fairly heavily in digital tech. I think it's safe to say that 35mm really is on the way out...but whether 3D is here to stay, I'm not sure. The thing is, the tech required to turn a digital projector into a 3D projector is just an extra bolt-on, so it'll almost be a matter of course, once more and more cinemas go digital, to add 3D capability. So if filmmakers are worried that making a film in 3D won't guarantee them an audience because not many cinemas can play it...that won't be an issue in the years to come.


I guess the main factor is whether or not the public get tired of wearing stupid glasses to watch headache-inducing nausea trips ;)

Also, I really fucking hope this AMBX-in-a-cinema thing never gets off the ground. People are bad enough with spitballs on screens...imagine what they could do with fans!

That's not 4D, that's Philips Ambi with smells. Dumb marketing twits.


I thought 4D cinema involved just splashing the audience with water :P

Just? Perhaps you've forgotten the bubbles and air gusts?

Maybe I wasn't clear enough, but in B) of my previous post I was referring to the way that Sony are now putting 3D in all their Blu-Ray players.


(also imagine how a "4D" home cinema could be used for a more... personal experience) or don't, it may be safer that way.

A couple of months back, I finally got tired of my yellow head lamps to go and buy some Meguiar's PlastX and try to correct the problem. It got rid of the yellow, but not the haze. Fast forward to today and I decided to break out my sanding paper (after some Googleing) and try to actually fix it.

Before:

After (yes, got the wife to help too. :P )

Used 600 - 2000 grit, plus some rubbing compounds after.

Since we're on the topic of 3D video etc.......

Maybe we can watch 3d movies without glasses!!!
Example

That.... that just sucked and if I watch any more of it I'm going to need glasses for everything else, let alone 3d.

fyi: im not prone to those problems however I was pointing you that in order to watch that video you have to force your eye to do something that it is not normally meant to do, and do it for an extended period of time. I reckon that I you watched a video like that every day you WOULD start damaging your eyesight.

Damn you.

I don't need more games. I ahve so many to play through as it is. but I -have- been meaning to pick up Eufloria, and I'd forgoptten about how great Auditorium is. Just wanting those two makes the package worth it - let alone the others which seem to have got some good praise...
