When a new technology arrives it is then integrated across all types of communication channels and changes the services offered by those channels. Recently HD made its way on to our screens, now you can buy phones that allow you to create High Definition video and upload it directly to the web.

With the imminent arrival of 3D TV, we are going to see 3D overlap itself with HCI(Human Computer Interaction). We will see this in projects like Microsoft’s Natal. This is where the power of hand gestures will now allow us to interact with games and other applications.

The power behind some of this fourth coming technology is a company called Canesta, who have spent a lot of time and money to get to where they are. They have developed a chip that allows 3D gestures to be recognised by the computer and small enough to be fitted into everyday consumer devices.

By placing 3D cameras into every conceivable device will now allow us to change the way we interact with onscreen menus, but also the way we see the on screen information.

Minority Report is just round the corner.

Telly’s have become high maintenance appliances over the last few years and this sets to continue with the advent of 3D television.

We have gone from terrestrial to digital.

Digital to High Definition and online services. Add in Free Sat, if you need ITV in HD.

Now HD gets replaced with 3D as the latest in the line of new technologies.

Ultra High 3D should be with us just before finishing this post…

…..only joking, one must always keep a sense of humour about change, since the wallet is empty from buying all those now redundant Televisions, TV Tuner Cards and Set Top Boxes.

No but seriously, with specifications like this from LG :

OLED

Ultra Thin 6.9mm

3D

DTV

TruMotion 480Hz

Together with the LG Magic Wand system,  the whole experience sounds sweet, check out the demo video at :
