3-D films are actually making an impact at theaters. And 3-D
television is ramping up for a big push in 2010 and beyond. So what’s next?Acer 3d laptop

How about 3-D laptops?

Acer has unveiled the Aspire 5738DG, a new PC utilizing its new
3D CineReal technology – which is basically a coating that’s applied to the
screen that converts 2-D images to 3D when users wear a pair of polarized
glasses. It’s software dependent, meaning it doesn’t require nVidia’s 3-D
graphics processor. It will also up-convert any existing media you run through
the machine into 3D.

Whether Acer is aiming to capture a share of the gaming or
media enthusiast market is still unclear. The company said in a press release
that its CineReal Technology will help the PC evolve “from a working tool to a
daily household appliance” – which might be something of an oversimplification.

For now, the system is only on sale in New Zealand, but carries
the expected high price tag ($1,484).
