The television has been through many changes from its invention. The days, where black and white TV was available only in few houses are long gone. The color TV has paved a new path for entertainment. The sizes of the TV used in olden days was comparatively very large, and heavy. Nowadays, we find Ultra-thin and long televisions that can be attached to the wall. The quality of the video was always the target for the TV manufacturers, and it’s still given the highest priority amongst the competitors to acquire a good share of the market. The next step was to add advanced features and projection of the video in a three-dimensional space came into existence.
Mostly, we tend to use the 3D glasses to experience the 3d effect, and the video is blurry when viewed with the naked eye. The glasses work on the same principle on how our naked eyes perceive the world which is 3D. Our eyes are slightly spaced away from each other, and hence each eye looks at an object of interest from a different angle. The brain then clubs the images together to form an image having a 3D effect and also added a good amount of depth to it.
The 3D glasses allows the person to look at two images of the same thing and deceives the brain into looking at a 3D image. These special effect glasses are not a new invention. These have been there for a very long time, and people might have known the application of it. If you are watching a film, they make you sense that you are involved in the movie as if you are part of it, and can feel objects coming so close to you that you might get frightened, and this increases the thrill of watching a movie.
There are cases where the use of 3D glass is not required. These are known as Holograms. A three-dimensional image which has to be viewed in a dim lighting to see the effects of translucent projection. The projection can be series of images or a person talking. We have witnessed this experience in museums, and also in companies where the founder says few words.
The application is endless. The applications include, the field of medicine to give better comprehension of the human body, in military section to show the maps of the places to execute the operation, simulation purposes in the field of engineering, for real-life experience for gamers, for educational lectures to make it much interactive for students. With advanced features comes a very high cost. These technologies are not affordable for everyone, and hence it is a letdown. As the majority of people are living a normal lifestyle, this makes the higher paid individuals have a luxurious, life-like experience to fancy as a form of entertainment.
The future also promises us, a 3D experience regarding foldable television technology. Imagine where you can just unfold you TV screen anywhere and watch your TV series and fold it back and let it be. You do not need to go to a specific place just to view television anymore.
