Info from QJ article:
"The next generation of TV - Is it HDTV, smellovision or 3D TV? Well, we already have HDTV so technically that's the current generation. As for smellovision, we don't think it'll get that far in our lifetime and frankly, with some of the nonsense you can find on your TV set these days we don't think it'll be that practical. We're left with 3D TV, which thanks to Phillips WOWvx technology has come true. Here's an account of someone who has seen the 3D TV:
I entered a conference room in Manhattan and a woman on the TV tossed a handful of rose petals out of the screen, where they floated in the air before my eyes. At least, that's what I saw. In truth, the image resided on a perfectly flat, 42-inch LCD screen. But the 3-D illusion was fully believable, and I didn't have to wear a dorky set of polarizing glasses.
That's right, you can now get a TV that actually seems like it's right in front of you without looking stupid. The technical part: Phillips' WOWvx technology places tiny lenses over each of the millions of red, green and blue sub pixels that make up an LCD or plasma screen. The lenses cause each sub pixel to project light at one of nine angles fanning out in front of the display, making it seem as if it is in front of the TV screen and therefore 3-Dimensional.
In New York, the company demonstrated the technique with the first-person shooter Call of Duty. It looked almost perfect, except for a little shimmering around the edges of objects, which Philips says will be fixed in the coming months. So remember, next time somebody asks you what TV you're getting next, don't get HD or smellovision; go for the smart option - 3DTV."
I can't wait until this comes out! It'll be so awsome and cool! Wow, 9 angles of 3D! I wonder if tihs'll be better than 3D in theatres (it probably will be!)?
Also, in the Wired article Phillips said these should be avalible on the market by June 2007 and every store they sells them will have displays for the TV!
