  • I was 10 years old, it was 1993. Nobody reading this would probably believe this but I myself came up with the idea of using liquid crystal glasses to filter two separate video streams into the eyes using a time controlled system. Initially the purpose was to enable two people in the same room to watch two separate programs on a single screen by wearing a pair of these glasses which would filter the correct frame from the correct show to the person who wanted it and each wearing headphones so they could hear the show they wanted.

  • Those 3D TV's were way ahead of their time. I worked at Best Buy when they started all the 3d stuff and it was ridiculously expensive. I remember we had a 50" 3D Panasonic Plasma display that was like $2,600. And each pair of glasses was like $150. Like you said in the video, it probably would do better now since tv prices have plummeted since then.

  • I used to love 3D tvs and 3D entertainment! I convinced my parents to get a 3D tv back in like 2008 or something and they handed it down to me just a month or two ago and it's such understood technology. Get a 3D screen and a movie designed for 3D and youll be a fan, that is unless you get headaches.

  • So I just found this channel an hour ago and I'm a bit confused. You're telling me Dan lives in the UK and Gav lives in USA and Dan comes to USA to film the videos and then fly back out??? And they started the channel so that Gav can have a visa to come to USA?? *Incredible*. This is literally the most wholesome channel I ever found. (can some long time fan please verify this info and please feel free to add to some of my knowledge).
