Everything is better in 3D, right?  Okay, you may not wholeheartedly agree, but 3D is not a flash in the pan.  In fact, it was first seen in 1838 when the first patent was issued to Charles Wheatstone.  Needless to say, the technology didn’t catch on.  But almost 100 years later the first 3D glasses technology was first used for a full-length movie in 1922 with the silent film ‘The Power of Love’.  Then in 1953 a whopping 39 movies were released in 3D.  However, the 3D of the 1950s, even the 1980s, and 1990s is not what is today.

That all being said, 3D is no longer relegated to the cinemas, or to those that can afford the best in home audio gear.  Today, you can purchase a 3D television for under $500 and the experience is pretty darn compelling.  But what’s a 3D tv without any content?  Sure, there are plenty of 3D movies, but we prefer to look for more interactive experiences, such as LG’s 3D Facebook app.  Instead of viewing the traditional timeline, your posts are transformed into dynamic stacks.  With a click you can zoom, scroll down, and view your Facebook posts like never before. In fact, you can try the app out for yourself, even if you don’t have a 3D TV (but it’s better if you do).  Just go here, login using your Facebook info, and your feed will be instantly transformed.   If you’re in search of a 3D television checkout LG’s full range of 3D sets, which start about $700.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
